Girl Scouts Food Drive 2008

For every 100 items dropped off at one time directly at a Girl Scout collection location, a registered Girl Scout troop will receive not only ten entries in a drawing for a free Girl Scout Program Activity for her entire Girl Scout troop, but also a Girl Scout Food Drive Patch for each girl.

Community members joining the Girl Scouts in this drive may choose to donate on behalf of a particular Girl Scout. Individuals dropping off food items at Dominick’s may call the closest Girl Scout collection location to enter the girl in the drawing, providing the girl’s troop number and the number of food items donated. The Girl Scout will receive one entry into the drawing for every ten items donated.
