Perham Girl Scout Brownie Troop 30513 have collected and donated 127 pounds of food, along with a cash donation from their fall product sales, for the Perham Food Shelf.

The donation was part of the troop's effort to earn its "Change A Story" patch (the second part of "It's Your Story - Tell It," a leadership journey).

Each girl had to address a local problem and work with the troop as a whole to change that 'story.'

For this project, each scout asked 10 neighbors for a food donation to be given to the food shelf. The goal was to have each girl collect two products per neighbor.

Troop leaders are Mara Frohling and Rachel Tumberg.
