Cub Scout Pack 88 Fighting Hunger with Doorways


Scouts from Cub Scout Troop 88 held a curbside drop-off food collection before Thanksgiving with three collection points in Rumford and Seekonk. The food drive was very successful, with the food donations filling the carts at Doorways to overflowing. “We wanted to do something to help the scouts understand the need in the community, and how we can take action to help” said the scout leader. “With younger kids, seeing a pile of food building all morning before their eyes is a good way to get a sense of accomplishment and purpose.” To the volunteers at Doorways, it was more than a pile – it was a mountain of food. We thank the scouts and their moms and dads for their help in this time of need.
