Thank you to all that participated in this year’s Scouting for Food project.  As you know the donated food was taken to North Church Parish Hall for sorting, tallying and packaging.  After all donations were packaged the boxes were taken to the Fire Station in Stratham, NH.  The final tally of items we collected was 3,086.  This is a 34% increase from last year when 2,300 items were collected.  Items collected consisted mostly of boxed and canned goods.  Two boxes of toiletries and paper goods were also collected along with three boxes of items in glass jars.  

Again thank you to all that helped to make this year’s Scouting for Food a huge success.  The items collected will go to area food pantries to assist those that are in need. Great job!
