CLARK,NJ - Assembling 240 sandwiches and 115 hygiene kits for those in need is not easy task on any day.   Clark's Webelo and Bear scouts were not deterred and completed the project in the spirit of service on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, January 18.

Den Leader, Darlene Alicea said thanks to the donations from the Clark community, the scouts were able to give the sandwiches to the Elizabeth Coalition for the Homeless and the hygiene kits to teens at Visions and Pathways  along with lots of extras. 

"I am so very proud of the boys for doing their part in giving back to the community. The generous donations from our neighbors and family helped make it all possible."  said Alicea.
