Over 1,400 items donated for local families in need

To the Editor:

Boy Scout Troop 264 would like to thank the community for its generous donations of food and money to St. Lucy’s Food Pantry during its food drive on Saturday, Nov. 9. 

We collected 232 bags of food that totaled 1,436 items that St. Lucy’s will distribute to local families in need.

Community service is an important part of Troop 264 and the response of the community makes it possible for the troop to continue providing this service.  

We would also like to thank the community for its monetary donations to our troop and for the bottles and cans that the troop will redeem for new camping equipment. 

The community support for scouting was made clear during our food and bottle drive and is truly appreciated.
