Gettysburg Brownie Troop 80288 learns about the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen
Kathleen Redding, the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen’s Outreach Liaison, had the privilege to meet with the Gettysburg Brownie Troop 80288 at the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church. The girls heard a brief history of the Soup Kitchen and saw some pictures of the Kitchen in action. Each Brownie had questions about the Soup Kitchen. Some questions were, “How did the Soup Kitchen got its name?” and “Where does the food come from?” The girls and Kathleen talked about people being homeless and under-employed. The Brownies showed sincere interest in how the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen is operated and expressed a deep interest in helping serve there some day. The Brownie Troop 80288 will be making diabetic desserts for the Soup Kitchen in January as part of their Philanthropic Badge. Attached is the girls’ thank you note for Mrs. Redding’s visit.
