“We usually get the staple food donations of canned vegetables and dried pasta, so something sweet like cookies is an extra special surprise for pantry users,” said AmeriCorps VISTA Belina Sengmanyvong, who coordinates the volunteers and donations with the pantry.

The SOS food pantry at Austin Peay, which serves 400 people each year, was established five years ago to provide food to APSU students and families in need. The pantry and the free thrift shop run off of donations from the campus and the community.

Troop 2604 sold 4,000 boxes of cookies to the Clarksville community during this year’s Girl Scout Cookie season. For the last two years, these scouts have been raising money for a trip to Savannah, Georgia, to visit the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Lowe, founder of the Girl Scouts.

Throughout the last two years, the scouts have also focused on supporting the local community, with donations and support to organizations such as the SOS pantry.

The SOS pantry is always in need of donations.
