Girl Scout Troops Collect Food for Impoverished Families

          Yesterday, Girl Scout troops 1197, 4880, and 4895 from Norton Creek Elementary in West Chicago brought an extremely generous food drive donation to our center for the Christmas Offering! The girls and their troop leaders came to the center for a tour and to drop off the food they collected. They spread the word about their food drive by canvassing their neighborhoods with flyers and putting an article in the school newsletter. Their drive was enormously successful! They brought in over 50 bags of non-perishables! We want to thank these girls for putting so much spirit into helping the 150 impoverished families we serve through the Christmas Offering. Each family receives 3-4 weeks worth of groceries, including fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, meat and non-perishable items, to help them get through the Christmas season. 
          The girl scouts were also very excited to go on the tour and learn more about HSP. Many of them had come last year and were incredibly enthusiastic to help again! HSP would like to thank them for putting this food drive together and helping us serve needy families at Christmastime.
