Scouting for Food Collection November 5th


The annual “Scouting for Food” food drive is coming on November 5. The Scouts from BSA Troops 1 and 9, and the Cub Scouts from Pack 88, will be collecting donations from homes in Seekonk and Rumford. Last year’s collection was an enormous success, and the Scouts are looking forward to another big day. “The ‘Scouting for Food’ drive is very important to us” said Diane Fox of Doorways. “Last year’s donations were incredible – the people in town are so generous. And it’s not just the quantity of food – it’s also the variety gathered by a big food drive. People often donate the food items they love best, and so you get a nice selection for our clients to choose from. It’s very gratifying.”

The residents of Seekonk have always supported the food drive, and Cup Scout Pack 88 will again collect food in Rumford. As the cost of gasoline, fuel oil, and groceries continues to increase, the assistance provided by a food pantry is more important than ever. Over seventy families rely on Doorways on a regular basis, and Doorways, in turn, relies on people like you. We hope you will support the Scouts in their good work!
