Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada to fill meal bags, Junior League of Las Vegas and Girlfriend Time to make deliveries.
On Monday, March 8, in celebration of International Women’s Day, Delivering with Dignity will partner with three local female-led organizations. The Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada will fill meal bags with boxes of Girl Scout Cookies donated last month by the community. Members of the Junior League of Las Vegas and the meetup.com group, Girlfriend Time, will then deliver the meals to the doorsteps of the valley’s most vulnerable individuals and families who cannot safely leave their homes for food due to the COVID-19 crisis.
