More than 155 people and 12 Girl Scout Troops from Sage Canyon and Ashley Falls schools came together on the Sage Canyon campus recently to put together a record 130 Thanksgiving food bags for Friends and Family Community Connection’s (FFCC) holiday outreach project.

These bags will be delivered to low-income families throughout North County. The 12 troops are 1657, 1722, 1725, 1739, 3155, 3062, 3082, 3053, 3054, 1475, 1846, and 3106. The girls — grades K-6 — worked hard and made crafts and Thanksgiving cards. Then they filled their reusable bags — donated by Jimbo’s — with all the delicious foods used to make Thanksgiving dinner special. They also learned the lesson about the importance of showing compassion and serving others in need.

FFCC is a nonprofit that provides volunteer efforts locally, nationally and internationally with outreach efforts to fight hunger, disaster relief, and community service for those in need. Anyone interested in having their local Girl or Boy Scout troop participate in this annual event for next year should contact Teresa Miller at teresa@ismsports.net.
