YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Local Girl Scouts and Youngstown State University students joined forces Friday to fight hunger.
About a dozen Girl Scouts from Austintown and 20 YSU students collected food for Second Harvest Food Bank’s Harvest for Hunger campaign. The group got involved after the local Harvest for Hunger campaign sent out a call for specific items.
Troop leader and assistant professor Amanda Roby said the scouts were excited to help out.
“They love all service work, so anything where they are out in the community and they are busy, they are totally happy,” Roby said.
Roby said the drive also is a way for the scouts to see how their contributions benefit the community. She said they have collected two big boxes that are overflowing with items such as macaroni and cheese, tuna and cereal.
