Thanks to all scouts, siblings, and adults who helped out over the two Saturdays with Scouting for Food!  When all was done, Troop 30 collected 4370 items that were delivered to the Sts.

What a great way to help out those in need within our own community!  People really do pay attention when we "Do a Good Turn" - click here to see a note that was attached to one of the Scouting For Food bags.
