Girl Scouts know how hunger hurts

food drive Door hangers will be appearing on the front doors of homes throughout the Puget Sound when Girl Scouts begin their annual food collection drive Dec. 9-17. Girls of all ages are determined to top last year's record delivery of over 20 tons of food to Northwest Harvest food banks.
   In addition to door-to-door collections, over 2,000 girls will be at supermarkets asking shoppers to support the drive by purchasing extra cans of food.
   Some troops are even organizing food drives at local schools encouraging classmates to pitch in.
   Girls will be collecting throughout the 10 counties Girl Scouts-Totem Council serves, including King and Snohomish.
