Cub Scout Food Drive a Success

on Fri, 06/17/2011 - 15:03

Bedford Cub Scout Pack 194 recently conducted a successful food drive to support the pantry. The drive started when the scouts delivered empty grocery bags to local homes. A few days later, they picked the bags up, filled with donated food, and brought them to the pantry. The final step was to unload the items and put them in the right place on our shelves. The scouts got a good lesson in how the food pantry works, and we got some much appreciated food. Good work, guys, and thanks, moms and dads!
