Local Girl Scout Brownie troop 231, consisting of third grade girls who attend Brownsville and Crozet Elementary Schools, gathered and prepared 50 nonperishable food bags April 22 to donate to the Ronald McDonald House in Charlottesville. Ronald McDonald House helps many families in need of housing and food while dealing with challenging health situations in their family at the University of Virginia hospital.
The food bags are designed for breakfast and lunches for people on the go who do not take time to sit down and eat. The bags typically contain items such as applesauce, plastic fruit cups, raisins, crackers, oatmeal, popcorn, cookies, chips, cereal bars, granola bars, microwaveable foods such as macaroni and cheese and various cups of soup.
The troop meets at Crozet United Methodist Church.
