Every year when Girl Scouts sell their fall products (candy and nuts) and spring cookies, they also collect for community groups. No, they don’t collect money. They encourage people to buy one extra product and donate that product. Yes, I know it’s a way to sell more products, but it’s also a way to do a community service. As if it isn’t hard enough to try selling these products, it is also hard to choose where to donate the products. I have heard “If we don’t have enough for everyone, we don’t want any.” and “We don’t give away anything without nutritional value.” and several reasons that I’m not going to publish. So, I’m trying to develop a list of groups, agencies, etc. that WILL accept donated food products (ok, they are snacks not food). I am aware of the zillion group homes and non-profits in town and don’t really want to spend a week on the phone explaining this question. If you know of a group that you are certain would like to be on the list of interested recipients, please let me know.
