BUCYRUS—Girl Scout Troop #3533 has been busy giving back to the community that has supported them in so many ways. Since early January, our local Girl Scouts have been selling cookies to friends, family, co-workers and even outside of Walmart. Every year, after our cookie sale ends, we donate a portion of our cookie profits to a local non-profit organization. This year, our troop chose to donate to the Bucyrus Backpack Program LLC.
In addition to donating a portion of our cookie profits, we like to volunteer our time. Kathy Wells, President of the Backpack Program, opened our time with a presentation on what the Backpack Program does for students and who benefits from this wonderful program. Our troop was able to present a check for $250 to the Bucyrus Backpack Program LLC. Our check will provide weekend meals for 50 friends from Bucyrus Elementary School.
That’s 300 meals and 150 snacks just for selling Girl Scout cookies in our community. Additionally, our K-3 girls participated and filled approximately 230 bags of food to benefit students from Bucyrus, Wynford, Colonel Crawford, Buckeye Central, Crestline, St Joe Crestline, Fairway Preschool.
