Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts worked together Saturday to support Scouting for Food, collecting more than 100 very full shopping bags for the Watertown Food Pantry.
With the generous support from shoppers at the Watertown Street Stop & Shop, Troop 30 (scouts age 11-17) and Pack 30 (scouts age 5-10) collected shelf-stable goods for the Watertown Food Pantry.
“I want to thank Boy Scout Troop 30 for the heartwarming donation,” said Kathleen Cunningham, Watertown Food Pantry Coordinator. “The hard work and generous collection of over 120 bags of food received will certainly make a difference in our community for the holidays and after. Your commitment, along with your donation is truly overwhelming.”
Public service is a large part of scouting, and the Watertown Food Pantry is a perfect partner for that service: Both the Boy Scouts and the Pantry call 80 Mt. Auburn Street home. The Food Pantry is open to Watertown residents in need on Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and Thursdays, 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m.
