In October 2018, Junior Girl Scout Troop No. 1925 started a “Girl Scout Journey, Agent of Change.”

The 4th Grade girls took great pride in learning about themselves, their team and their community. In working towards their badges and having fun along the way, they noticed that Kershaw County has many hungry people in the community. They took to work to help “make our world a better place” as stated in the Girl Scout Law. They came up with the idea of the “Little Food Pantry.” The girls designed, built, painted and stocked it so that those in need can have food within reach.

“With your help, we can sustain the Little Food Pantry and continue to make our world a better place,” Troop 1925 Leader Cristal Bryant Orr said. “How will this work? With community support! We ask that when you go shopping for your normal groceries and can afford, please pick up an extra item to add to the Little Food Pantry. If you need a little help, please feel free to take one item per person per visit so we can help as many people as possible. With your continued support, we can sustain this wonderful blessing to our community.”

The girls scouts will be in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot on East DeKalb Street on Monday at 3 p.m. to host a dedication service to area citizens. The public is invited to support the girls and the community.

“I’d like to thank my girls for all their hard work, their parents for getting them to the meetings, Carrie Tutt for being my co-leader, Gerald Munn at Camden Piggly Wiggly for his support, David Orr for helping the girls complete this project, and the many citizens who supported my troop by buying a box of Girl Scout cookies or making a donation. You are appreciated!”
