Girl Scouts from SU 20 in Warren County collected food for their local Food Pantry - approximately 10 large storage boxes of food were filled. The main event though, was their Operation Shoebox efforts.
The girls worked through their schools and towns to collect items for Operation Shoebox for one month and then came together October 26 to sort the items, hear about Operation Shoebox from Jane Mamar, write letters and cards to the servicemen and women, and to interact with an Army Reserve Soldier from our area who recently returned from Iraq.
The event was a huge success. Jane Mamar was totally blown away by how much three small towns were able to do. They took back 2 pickup trucks and a car load full of items, as well as hundreds of letters and cards.
