Make Hunger Crumble

Dear Girl Scout Troops:

In the last five years, through the Gift of Caring Program, the Girl Scouts of the Arizona Cactus-Pine Council have donated 65,670 boxes of cookies to mmmilk and Cookie Mania at St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance. That is equal to 65,670 smiling Arizona kids who don't have the luxury of eating cookies or other treats; their families don't always know if there will even be food for the table every day.

And, along with those boxes of cookies, Shamrock Farms matched each donated package and donated 50,000 servings of farm fresh milk.

Thank you to all of the girls who have participated in this program. This year we are launching a new program, Make Hunger Crumble: Cookies for a Cause. Once again, we will rely on your community involvement, asking the public to donate a box of cookies to a family in need. With each box of cookies accompanying one of our Emergency Food Boxes, you are bringing hope to Arizona families; you are standing side by side St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance as we work to eliminate hunger.

We truly appreciate your commitment to the community. Together, let's make hunger crumble in 2008!

Terry Shannon
President & CEO
