CLARK, NJ – Scout Troop 145 recently rallied together while social distancing to make approximately 270 sandwiches for St. Agnes’s Sandwich drive benefiting the St. Joseph’s Food Pantry in Elizabeth. Each volunteer Scout was given a loaf of bread and a pound of meat and cheese donated by the Troop to make individually wrapped sandwiches.
Ted McKeown, Scoutmaster, said of the service project, “We are proud of our Scouts and parents for donating their time and effort when people in our community need the help the most.”
The following boys joined in on this project:
Dante and Xander Cistaro
Matt, Dan and Bob Vill
Zak and Nick Raab
In the spirit of community effort, Julianna Cistaro, a Girl Scout from Troop 40537, and Alicia Bolen also donated sandwiches via Troop 145.
