PAY IT FORWARD: WEEKEND MEALS FOR KIDS IN NEED
For this year’s CCE Pay-It-Forward service project, the 5th grade Girl Scout Troop 2185 is collecting weekend meals for 80 students who are in need at Anderson Mill, Purple Sage and Canyon Creek Elementary school.  

Specific foods are requested.  To see the grocery list and sign up to make a donation, please click on the following link http://girlscouttroop2185.weebly.com/cce-pay-it-forward.html.  If all Sign-Up spots are filled, CCE will get a Pajama Day in May!  

From April 25th - 29th, donation bins will be located by the main staircase.  The girl scouts will take the food to the Backpack Program, which puts a weekend meal kit (2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and 2 snacks) in the backpacks for students in need every Friday. What a great way to support our community!
