Many Scouting troops are participating in Scouting for Food this weekend and next for the local food banks. Food bank stores are extremely low going into the holidays ansd are having trouble keeping up with the demand due to our current situation. Your donations can help. Putting out a few cans or boxes for collection can make a huge difference now and its an easy way to help! Please consider supporting the Scouts in helping others. Waretown bag distribution is this weekend - collection is next weekend. Scouts will not be distributing donation bags in compromised areas for safety, so if you have a donation and don't get a bag or if your bag gets put outlate and your donation is missed up you can bring your items to the St. Stephen's Episcopal Church's food pantry (Route 9 Waretown) on Saturday the 17th or ANY time you are in the area. Thanks for your support!
