Local Girl Scouts will donate more than 100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to distribute to homebound seniors. Members of Girl Scout Troop #10707 in Southeast Portland will deliver more than 100 boxes of cookies on Monday, Aug. 31, at 4 p.m. to the Meals on Wheels People Central Kitchen at 7710 SW 31st Avenue in Portland.
“This donation is really appreciated by our homebound participants, especially now,” said Meals on Wheels People CEO Suzanne Washington. “So many of those we serve are staying at home more than ever before and had no way to access a traditional Girl Scout cookie sale. This donation will really brighten their day.”
Meals on Wheels People has been preparing and delivering nearly 8,000 meals daily since the pandemic began earlier this spring.
About Meals on Wheels People: Meals on Wheels People has been changing lives, one meal at a time, since 1970. We provide more than a meal to thousands of older adults in the greater Portland metro area. Our service not only alleviates hunger and social isolation, but allows seniors to live independently with dignity in their own homes. Aging in place reduces depression, falls and hospitalization as well as the high cost of institutional care. For more information, visit: mowp.org.
