Good News about Hunt.Fish.Feed., Kasey Lorance and Girl Scout Troop 40023

Girl Scout Troop No.40023 recently packaged over 300 snack packs for homeless children. The scouts used a portion of their cookie sale proceeds to purchase juice boxes, granola bars, fruit gummi packs, and an extra snack such as pretzels and cheese. The snack packs, along with a handwritten note for each child, were given to the 5 Cities Homeless Coalition to distribute in the South County.
