(North Salem, N.Y.)  --Daisy Troop 2950 in North Salem, which was founded a little over a year ago as a kindergarten troop, enjoyed the season of giving by paying a visit to the Community Center of Northern Westchester’s food pantry in Katonah. The girls, who earned their Make the World a Better Place petal, started their own food drive in October and collected non-perishable foods for the pantry as part of their project.
Doreeen Gadigan, with the food pantry, taught the girls about what the pantry does for local families during times of hardship. She answered the girls’ questions and encouraged the girls to continue to donate and support the community. 
The Troop was invited to weigh all of their food donations and add them to the shelves of the pantry. They were also given a tour of the clothing donations housed upstairs in the building and later donated a men’s jacket for a young man in the community.
Troop leaders Lisa Bain and Martina Henry said the girls were thrilled to be part of the effort and plan to return again at a later date.
