Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God* and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Sack Lunch Mission 2009

November is "Service Month" and Junior Girl Scout Troop #840 along with the children of First United Methodist Church of Edmond will be making 300 Sack Lunches to feed some of the homeless of Oklahoma City on November 14. We will meet in the Christian Activity Center of FUMC on November 14 at 9:30 AM and plan to leave with all 300 lunches by about 11AM to deliver them.

Our troop is on a Journey to become Agents of Change and make a Difference in our World. We discovered that there is an on-going need in the community to help feed others. Our troop made 120 sack lunches last year and this year have invited the children of First United Methodist Church to join in this mission and make 300 Sack Lunches this year. The troop voted to make the lunches much like last year and include a sandwich, drink, piece of fruit, bag of pretzals and piece of candy. They younger children joining our mission will help by decorating the brown bags that the lunches will go into. We will be delivering them to either the Jesus House or Grace Rescue Mission in Oklahoma City. We have set a goal of making at least 300 Sack Lunches this year.
We are a Girl Scout Troop of 8 4th grade girls, from 2 different elementary schools in Edmond, OK and will be joined by the children of FUMC of Edmond.

We will be collecting donation for the lunches through this week and make the lunches on Saturday to be delivered for lunch the same day. We need bread, meat, drinks, sandwich bags, brown bags, boxes for delivery, pretzals, fruit and sweet treats (any Halloween Candy that you would like to donate) to include in the bag lunches.

If you have any questions or would like to donate, please contact Amy Akin, Junior Girl Scout Troop Leader at:
