Staff Report
It may be little.But the Girl Scouts’ sponsored Little Pantry is far from being little used, according to a spokeswoman for the project thatstarted earlier this year.
They would also like a little help from the community.The Little Pantry is located inside the entry to the American Bank Center. The Killdeer Junior/Cadette troop leader for Killdeer Girl Scout Troop 85112 is Kelli Schollmeyer.
According to Farra Barnett, a parent, volunteer and spokeswoman for the troop,the pantry can always use some restocking.
“The Girl Scouts started this project last spring as a way to help battle food insecurity in their community.
Anyone is welcome to takeitems from the pantry and everyone is encouraged to help stock the pantry,” Barrett explained.
Donated items should be non-perishable food items and toiletries. Paper products and feminine hygiene products are encouraged, as well.
“The wonderful thing about this particular pantry is it is located inside so liquid and canned items will not freeze during the upcoming cold months. Feel free to help the Girl Scouts stock this valuable resource they’ve made available to everyone,” Barnett added.
