Clarksville, TN – In America we tend to think of hunger as a minimal problem. But, it is estimated one in six Americans – and one in five children in the U.S. – are dealing with a very real hunger problem. Nearly 15 percent of Americans live in food insecure households, where a lack of money and/or resources means there isn’t consistent access to quality food and nutrition.
September is National Hunger Action Month; nationwide people are asked to take action to fight hunger in their communities. Hunger Action Month offers an opportunity to share your time, talent and resources to impact your local food pantries and soup kitchens to help feed Clarksville-Montgomery County Residents who struggle every day.

Girl Scouts Plan Knit-A-Thon to aid children with cancer
Clarksville, TN – Ryleigh, a member of Girl Scouts Troop 779, had a class mate that passed away last year from cancer. It was hard for her to watch a classmate grow sick, lose her hair, then finally her battle with cancer. While they weren’t close, getting the updates of her classmate was confusing, painful and frustrating – being only 13 years old, and not knowing what to do to help.
So when her she sat down with her fellow troop members to brainstorm about what to do for a Silver Award project (the second highest award that a Girl Scout can earn), she thought of her classmate and mentioned it to them – and the rush of ideas began to take form.
