Brandy Pesi, supervisor, Substation Design Engineering, recently donated boxes of Girl Scout cookies to the Westmoreland County Food Bank. She is a leader of Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania Troop 46741. The troop’s cookie booth days were cancelled due to the pandemic. The girls wanted to do some good with the extra packages of cookies and donated several cases to various essential workers around their community and several cases to the food pantry at Fells United Methodist Church in Rostraver.
