While working on a community service oriented project to earn the Bronze Award with the Girl Scouts of America, Mia Noguchi from Troop 8 in Pearl City, organized and successfully conducted two food drives in Pearl City in late March and early April that brought in over 1,240 pounds of food donations from our community residents.
Mia held food drives at Momilani Elementary School from March 25th – April 1st, and at the Momilani Community Center's Farmers Market on Friday, April 4th.
The final weigh-in tally from the food donations collected were reported to Mia recently by Hawaii Foodbank community food drive organizers much to the delight of Mia and her food drive team of supporters and volunteers.
"The Hawaii Foodbank had given me the total amount of can food collected and it was 1,240 pounds! I am very happy that I reached my goal! …Mia Noguchi
Mia's food drive and community service efforts, along with the generous "gift of giving" from our Pearl City community, will help support the Hawaii Foodbank's mission to provide nourishment for Hawaii's needy.
Thank you Mia for keeping our MyPearlCity.com online ohana updated on your efforts to serve our community while working hard towards your goal of earning the Bronze Award with the Girl Scouts of America.
The Pearl City community is very proud of you!
