Meet the girls who are taking action on poverty

Do not underestimate the power of girls.  This holiday season, Girl Guides from coast to coast to coast are all about the giving as they take part in our National Service Project: Action on Poverty. They’re sewing mittens for youth experiencing homelessness, making snack bags for teens in need, and volunteering at local food programs – demonstrating their power to make a difference in their own neighbourhood. These Girl Guides are definitely proving that #GirlPower is more than just a catchy hashtag or T-shirt slogan.

According to Food Banks Canada’s Hunger Report 2016, more than 800,000 Canadians access food banks every month – 36 % of whom are children. Through Action on Poverty, Girl Guides are supporting those facing hunger in their communities. 

Some units focused their community service on those their own age, assisting youth and young adults experiencing homelessness.

For these Pathfinders and Rangers, it was teamwork for the win.
