ASM Sean Leong and Scout Justin L. made the food delivery before Thanksgiving:
POST HOLIDAY DONATIONS
While most people make donations to the Food Pantry during the holidays, Human Needs actually has high need for food year round, hunger doesn’t discriminate. So the Troop made a second donation post-Christmas:
A $50 gift coupon from Scoutmaster Carl to Stop N’ Shop, netted the following:
8 boxes of pasta
3 jars of peanut butter
1 jar of jam
1 packet of rice
2 jars of pasta sauce
10 cans of tuna
5 cans of assorted beans
2 boxes of cereal
Special thanks to my wife, Sophia Leong for making all those runs to the local supermarkets for getting all of the post-Christmas food donations, including the following additional items:
2 cans of instant coffee
3 jars of peanut butter
1 bottle of cooking oil
10 boxes of pasta
Thanks again to all of the families that helped out on this food drive, The Troop strives to help give back to the community we call “home” as much as we can.
