Macy's Girl Scout troop worked at a local grocery store this morning, collecting cans for Harvesters. It was neat to see the girls so excited! They really got into it--more than I thought they would. They did a great job taking turns, so they wouldn't bombard the customers when they came in.
You could tell right away who was going to donate cans and who wasn't. Not to be stereotypical--but it was mainly the younger men who didn't. Single men, I'm guessing, who don't understand how valuable the Harvesters program can be. Women grocery-shopping were our best bet. One man, maybe 50, filled up four grocery bags to donate!
The girls were so excited I signed them up for Salvation Army bell-ringing in December. Hopefully that works just as well!
