The girls give back...

This past Saturday I took 10 Miss Twin Cities contestants to Feed My Starving Children in Eagan to pack boxes of food for children over seas. This year we really wanted to do a service orientated project, and get the girls involved in the community. I thought this would be perfect for the occasion. Early Saturday morning we met, and joined several other groups at the Eagan location to pack food. I was so proud and excited for the girls that showed up. It was great to see them all there smiling and ready to go at 9 AM! They all had great attitudes and were so wonderful all morning long!
After two hours we along with the other groups packed 80 boxes of food, which added up to be about 3000 meals that will be shipped over seas! These particular meals will be shipped to Haiti to feed children there. Here's a few pictures of the girls from Saturday:

All the girls just before orientation at the Eagan location. We watched a video about some history of the program, and heard about where the food goes from when they ship it out.
