A TON (literally) of Food

The troop was hard at work the last couple weekends working for the Dublin Food Pantry! The first weekend we handed out information to some neighborhoods around Dublin. Th following weekend we returned to those houses and collected a ton of food! We headed back to the church and sorted for a few hours. In the end we collected over 2000 pounds of food. One of the members of the Dublin Food Pantry told us how impressed she was with scouts. She said that many of the scout troops across Dublin were helping at the pantry, and that it was a huge help. She also told us a few stories of people receiving the food, and it felt great to be part of the process. 

Overall it was a great service to our community!!!
