Girls from Troops 651, 485, 2 girls (little sisters) from 1417, 574 and 1868 baked apple, pumpkin, blueberry, and chocolate cream pies at the Westbrook Warren Church in preparation to donate them for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Julie Webster, troop leader of Troop 1816 and Nonesuch Service Unit Treasurer, said, “This year we donated the pies to The Wayside Food Program. In years past we donated to the Westbrook Food Pantry, but they have not accepted donations since COVID began. They get food from Wayside, so we decided to donate to Wayside.”
This year there were troops that participated for the first time, and for some girls, they were making their first pies ever. 32 pies were baked in total. Way to go, girls!
Wayside will be packing prepared Thanksgiving meals this year in bags decorated by Girl Scouts, and each bag will include a slice of the Nonesuch Service Unit pie!
Kasey and her family made face masks for people in their community.
