BSA Scouts still pitching in for Doorways


Over the past year, as Doorways Food Pantry has struggled to reinvent itself as a contactless food distribution, one of the few constants has been the unwavering support of BSA Troops 1 and 9, who volunteered from the very beginning of the pandemic to assist with curbside, “pop your trunk” distributions of pre-packed bags of non-perishable essential grocery items. “This was very big for us”, said Paul Hodge, one of Doorways’ curbside coordinators. “We were cut off from our volunteer base at the very beginning, and the scouts stepped in to fill a void, twice a month, without fail. It was very helpful.”

Doorways would like to thank not only the scouts, but the many people in town who have dropped off food donations, or mailed a check, or run a food drive. “We don’t make it all the way through the pandemic without a lot of help” said Hodge. “God bless all of you who helped this past year.”
