Girl Scout Troop 2856 Souper Bowl of Caring food drive
Girl Scout Troop 2856 Souper Bowl of Caring food driveThe 8 girls of troop 2856 approached the principals of Eldorado Elementary and Trailblazer Elementary about holding a Souper Bowl of Caring food drive the week leading up to the Super Bowl to earn their Bronze Award. Both principals gave their resounding support. Leading up to the event the girls created fliers to go home with all the students, communicated with local businesses for donations, collected boxes, and researched information about childhood hunger to share with both student bodies. Since this was a competition between the two schools the girls tallied the number of food items donated each day in each classroom with results shared at the end of each school day to motivate kids to bring in more the next day. The event ended on a Friday evening boxing up all the food at each school for delivery Monday morning to the Fresh Harvest Food Bank. Collectively the two schools donated 4,390 food items.
