A Watertown store purchased more than 100 of boxes of Girl Scout cookies from a Watertown Brownie Troop, and the girls recently delivered them to a pair of food pantries in town.
A local merchant bought 128 boxes of cookies from Brownie Troop 70133, and asked the girls to donate them, said Amy Trapasso, co-troop leader.
“Teresa, one of the new owners of The Meat Spot in Watertown Square, generously purchased more than $600 worth of Girl Scout cookies from Watertown Brownie Troop 70133 and asked that we donate them to the two food pantries in town,” Trapasso said. “We were surprised and excited by her generous donation.”
On Feb. 5, member of Troop 70133 delivered the cookies to the Watertown Food Pantry and the Watertown Catholic Collaborative Food Pantry.
“The food pantries were excited to get the donations,” Trapasso said. “Carol at the Watertown Catholic Collaborative Food Pantry told us they serve about 60 families each week and she expected the cookies to be taken by the end of this week. Her tour of the pantry and description of the need inspired the girls to come home and make lists of items to buy at the grocery store for donations.”
Troop 70133 has 17 third-grade girls from across all three Watertown elementary schools, as well as a girl who attends a private school and one another from Belmont.
Thanks Teresa for coming to Watertown, I hope we have been as welcoming to you as you have been to our community. I enjoy shopping at The Meat Spot, always enjoy talking with you as with everyone else. Say hello to Bob!
