|The Girl Scout Troop 1621 Community Pantry Box
Girl Scout Troop 1621 built a community pantry as their
Bronze Award project. The girls decided this project was a sustainable way to
help people in their community. The girls drew up plans for the pantry box. Next they visited local
groups such as Exit 0 & My Dog Eats First
and presented their idea to them to get their support and backing. Next
Troop 1621 built the box doing the work themselves with help from a few adult
Realizing that many of the homeless in the area have
pets, the members of Toop 1621 decided that the pantry box should have
shelves for different types of items. One shelf is dedicated to
pet food, treats and water for cats and dogs. Another shelf has food
and water for people. And a shelf was added containing
personal care products as well as a shelf for books.
All items are free for those having need. And, anyone who desires to support the pantry and help restock it as the need arises can find Girl Scout Troop 1621's pantry in front of Taggart Hall on Chestnut Street in downtown Jeffersonville.
