Girl Scout’s Charity Appeal Brings Spirit of Christmas to West Cape May Parade

West Cape May Christmas Parade/

Annika Marks has the Christmas spirit, and she’ll make sure you have it too if you help her.  Annika is an 11-year-old girl scout from West Cape May who organized a food and paper good drive to coincide with last year’s Christmas parade in West Cape May.

Annika’s plan to collect paper goods is a new one to me, and it’s a great idea!  As she explained in her letter to me (see below), paper products aren’t covered by food stamps or the SNAP program, so they are an item in real need by those in need.

Last year’s Girl Scouts Paper & Food Drive was so successful that the Food Bank of Cape May took in an estimated three month’s worth of paper goods to distribute to the needy.

The 46th Annual WCM Community Christmas Parade is billed as the best Christmas Parade in Cape May County, with over three hours of family fun and entertainment. Parade start time is 5:00PM. Parade starts at the WCM Fire Hall, proceeds south on Broadway to West Perry and to the Washington St. Mall. Call 609-884-1005 for information.

I only became aware of Annika’s successful charity efforts when she wrote to me looking for some publicity for her 2nd annual Girl Scout Paper/food Drive, to be held this Saturday evening during this year’s West Cape May Christmas Parade.

Annika’s letter really touched me and I hope it will touch you too – enough to take some food items and paper goods with you to donate at the West Cape May Christmas Parade this Saturday!  Here’s her letter…
