           Local food banks need your help to stock their pantries and
                       prevent hunger in our communities!
      Join us for our first-ever food drive as a NEW Council. Together, we will commemorate
 Girl Scout Week 2009 (March 8-14) by doing our part to feed our neighbors. Please bring your
         non-perishable donations to either GSSEF Service Center during Girl Scout Week.
                                  Together, we can reach our goal of…

           50,000 pounds of food
Here are all the details:
• Drop off your Troop’s non-perishable food donation to either GSSEF Service Center during Girl Scout Week 2009
  (Sun., March 8 – Sat., March 14). and have your donation “weighed!”
• EVERY POUND COUNTS! If you don’t live near a Service Center, please contact you Membership Manager or your
  Service Unit Volunteer Manager. We will all help you arrange delivery of your donation to a Service Center during
  Girl Scout Week.
• Individual girls and Troops are asked to collect food by: decorating “Drop” boxes at local churches/synagogues, the
  meeting location, schools, or Troop parent’s place of business; a collection for the families within the Troop; or
  Troops may choose to purchase non-perishable food items with proceeds from their Troop treasury.
• Each girl participant will receive a FREE “2009 GSSEF Feeding Florida Together” participation patch. Patches are
  pre-ordered by Friday, February 27, 2009. Use form below.
• FIVE fabulous top prizes will be awarded to the Five Troops with the greatest overall poundage.

  counties) and the Treasure Coast Food Bank (serving: Martin, Saint Lucie, Okeechobee and Indian River counties).
