Girl Scout cookies are everywhere! And Girl Scout Troop 1587 is making cookie selling extra special for our shelter residents this year. They are offering their customers the opportunity to purchase cookies for The Salvation Army.
Jennifer O’Connor and daughter McKenna, a Representative of Troop 1587, visited our Downtown Shelter for a tour and to talk about McKenna’s project to donate cookies for individuals and families living there. While at the shelter, they had the opportunity to see rooms where our families stay, our Learning Center, and our newly completed playground.
We are proud of McKenna and other young philanthropists like her for her efforts to make a difference for families living in our emergency shelters. The need is great and growing as more and more families come to us every day when they have no where else to turn. If you’d like to provide a hand up to individuals and families in need, please donate today.
