Operation 'snacks to delivery drivers' is underway in Pelion

During these hot summer months, Troop 3375 is trying to make working in the outdoors more bearable.

PELION, S.C. — A group of Girl Scouts in Lexington County is helping to make being a postal worker during this sweltering heat more bearable.

You could say they're packaging and delivering kindness.

"It makes me feel good," Abbi Keech, girl scout said.

Operation "snacks to delivery drivers" is underway in Pelion.

"Helping people is a really nice thing to do, especially because they work all day and then we've got to help them out," Keech said. 

Girl Scout Troop 3375 is packing up 200 of these bags to distribute to postal workers in Pelion, Swansea, West Columbia and anywhere else they see fit. 

"They're tired, they're out in the truck all day and so anything that we can do to help them a little bit, so we decided that we could make bags, make them happy and we've got Gatorade and water, some pop tarts," Nichole Keech, troop leader said.

The Pelion Girl Scouts troop leader saw a video of a postal worker collapsing on Facebook and wanted to promote a solution.

Their theory is a little bit of kindness in the form of a granola bar can go a long way.

"We live here, everybody works here, we should all be working together. We definitely want to lift each other up. That's something we strive for in our troop absolutely," Nichole Keech said.

The girls are packing bags this week and delivering next week. If you'd like to help support the troop with this effort by donating snacks, you can reach them on their Facebook page called troop 3375 by clicking here.
