Boy Scout Troop #375 Collects 392 Lbs. Of Food For White Center Food Bank
According to Gary McNeil, Boy Scout Troop #375 of Burien collected 392 pounds of food in the “Scouting for Food” drive on Saturday, March 20th.
The troop, sponsored by St. Francis of Assisi Church, donated all the food to the White Center Food Bank. Cub Scout Pack 375 helped by handing out bags the previous Saturday, March 13.
The food will help the food bank serve over 1,500 families this month.
“There were many generous households in the neighborhood around Seahurst Park,” McNeil said.
This year Boy Scouts of America is celebrating their 100th Anniversary, and helping feed hungry families is one of the many ways that Scouts serve their community. The Chief Seattle Council has planned many service projects and events to celebrate this milestone â€“ for more information check out their website here: www.seattlebsa.org.
