A 10-year-old Junior Girl Scout from Fairfield donated money raised from selling do-it-yourself cookie kits to a local food pantry.
Anjali Bandari created the do it yourself cookie kits to sell as part of her Junior Business Owner Badge.
She sold 40 jars of all the ingredients needed to bake confetti, chocolate chip, chocolate chip oatmeal or oatmeal raisin cookies, each complete with a recipe card.
The 10-year-old made $400 total from her sales and earned her badge, but she wanted to do more.
"I knew people needed help during COVID, so I decided to buy food and donated it to Operation Hope," Bandari says.
Bandari has been with Troop 32250 since she was in kindergarten, moving up from Daisy to Brownie, and now Junior Girl Scout.
She has earned dozens of badges along the way, but this one was especially rewarding.
"It made me feel good, because I was helping people when they needed help," she says.
Operation Hope says the need for its pantry has gone up amid the pandemic, and that Bandari's contribution means everything to someone in need.
