CLARK, NJ – Sandwiches – hundreds of them – will go to feed the hungry in Elizabeth this week, thanks to the efforts of Cub Scout Pack 145 in Clark.  At Friday’s pack meeting, 40 scouts and their families donated bread and sandwich meat, and then assembled over 600 sandwiches that will be distributed through the St. Joseph Social Service Center.

“The scouts had a sense of accomplishment in helping the needy,” Assistant Cubmaster Nancy Morris said. “They had a blast wearing sanitary gloves and just loved making the sandwiches. It was absolutely a very meaningful and educational pack meeting.” 

The sandwich making project was coordinated by Den Leader Judy Kronert. Volunteers from St. Helen's Church in Westfield will bring the sandwiches to Elizabeth on Monday.

In addition to the sandwich making, the scouts had a visit from two sheriff's officers. The officers discussed Internet safety and fingerprinted each of the children.

Morris said this was Joe Limone’s first official meeting as Cubmaster and that “it went extremely well.” Limone took over the top spot from Scott McCabe, who served as the pack's Cubmaster for many years
