Girl Scout Troops 1164 & 210 Fall Food Drive to benefit Hope Austin

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

I’m so glad to see Girl Scout Troops #1164 and #210 working hard on their 4th Annual Fall Food Drive benefiting Hope Austin! I found a bag (donated by HEB) on my front door step with exactly what donations they need.

They are in need of the following items: Pasta Cans/Packets, Soup Cans, Single Serve Apple Sauce and Single Serve Fruit Cups. The food collected on behalf of Hope Austin will help benefit the 500+ kids per week they serve in our local RRISD.

Hope Austin was started by two Moms who live in our Canyon Creek neighborhood! I love the quote Zee and Monica have engraved on their Thank You cards:

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”...Mother Theresa

The only thing we have to do is place items requested in the bag place on our doorstep and they will return next weekend to collect the items. On the flier is listed the exact date/pick up time. No bag/flyer - no problem (they couldn't cover the whole neighborhood). You can drop your contribution off at any time between now and Monday October 15th to - 10205 Brimfield drive Austin, TX 78726.

This is a very worthy project that benefits our community. If everyone would take the time to donate what a successful Food Drive this could be benefiting so many.

Thank you, Troop #1164 & Troop #210 for making a difference for our local school districts. If you have any Questions please email Lydia Harris (Troop 1164)

That is a very nice thing to do, I hope that they collect an abundant amount of food for those that need it.  Sure beats those cookies that make me fat, haha.

Dorie- I love seeing the Girl Scouts involved with this very worthy cause. We are all so fortunate to have an abundance just in our pantries alone. We should be giving all year to those less fortunate than us.
