KINGSPORT – To assist families suffering from the effects of the pandemic during the holidays, Girl Scout Troop No. 257, together with the congregations of Bethel Presbyterian Church and The Believers Church in Kingsport, purchased food to provide all items of a generous Thanksgiving Day meal to five local families. Items in each meal included a turkey, vegetables, rolls and a pumpkin pie. Kasey Hallmark, troop leader, said the experience helped the girls learn how to create a budget for grocery shopping.
