“Scouting for Food” - BSA Troops 1 & 9 Food Drive to Benefit Doorways


The Boy Scouts of America have conducted food drives in November for many years, but that tradition was threatened to be cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. But the scouts are always resourceful, and they adapted their food drive from a door-to-door collection to a contactless drop-off of donations at three locations in town. At the end of the drive, the scouts loaded several cars to deliver the food to Doorway food pantry. The food they collected will become part of the holiday dinners for over seventy families throughout our community. The scouts have also been a continuing presence at Doorways’ food distributions, helping to deliver curbside groceries with a smile (under a mask, of course!) Doorways salutes the young men and women of Troops 1 and 9 for their commitment to community service. Thank you!
