The Girl Scouts of Nassau County recently donated nearly 1,000 items to Island Harvest for Operation: Stop Hunger on Long Island, held annually as part of the Mags&Munchies program. The Mags&Munchies program gives Girl Scouts of all ages the opportunity to sell various products including popular magazines, candles, snacks, chocolates and more.
During the program, Girl Scouts ask customers if they would like to donate $5 to send nut/snack items to food pantries on Long Island. While collecting donations for Operation: Stop Hunger on Long Island, local Girl Scouts discover the joy of giving back to others.
Girl Scouts from Jericho, Malvern, Hicksville, and Valley Stream paid a visit to Island Harvest to drop-off the donated snacks. Events like this allow GSNC to continue their mission in serving their communities while teaching the girls about responsibility and caring for others. Every Girl Scout program is designed specifically to inspire girls to discover their talents and passions in a safe and supportive setting.
