April is an exciting month for Girl Scouts. This year, we’re kicking off camp, announcing new and exciting partnerships and celebrating our volunteers. But it doesn’t end there.
For the Girl Scouts of Western New York, April is also about giving back, specifically through our annual Girl Scouts Fight Hunger initiative.
Throughout the month of April, we encourage everyone in our council to donate food. These donations support the Food Bank of Western New York and Foodlink. All of our service centers are available to accept your donations, making it easy to contribute.
You can find us Batavia, Buffalo, Jamestown and Lockport. Our hours vary, so please confirm we’ll be there through our website before you stop by. If you want to donate but cannot make it to a service center, email us at email@example.com.
Like most drives, only non-expired and non-perishable food items will be accepted. Suggestions include peanut butter, canned fruits and veggies, mac and cheese, tuna, cereal, granola bars and more.
You can even fight hunger in your community while earning our Girl Scouts Fight Hunger Patch. You can join our council-wide effort to combat hunger through knowledge and awareness. There are two steps toward completing the patch: discover and connect and take action.
First, either on your own or with your troop or family you must find a way to discover and connect to the issue. After learning more, you will connect donations and drop them off at one of our locations. For more information about ways to connect and preregister for the patch, check out this flyer.
Thank you in advance to everyone who helps us fight hunger in Western New York!
