HAMILTON TOWNSHIP –  Girl Scout Troop 15478 in Mays Landing hosted a gathering of members of the Lenape Pines Girl Scouts designed to provide bags of holiday cheer to residents of the Atlantic City Rescue Mission Saturday, Nov. 23.

The Scouts met at the Atlantic County Library in Mays Landing to fill the bags with various sundries that were donated, as well as handwritten cards.

The mission’s volunteer program manager, Kathy Schmookler, spoke to the Scouts and their leaders about the role of the mission in helping the homeless, and thanked them for their efforts to bring them cheer for the holidays.

She collected the 110 bags of goodies, as well as a check for monetary donations that were made to be delivered back to the mission.
