HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Members of Hasbrouck Heights Boy Scout Troop 17 collected a record haul of food donations during its winter Scouting for Food outreach this past Saturday.
According to Mario Fanego, Scoutmaster, Troop 17 collected over 448 bags of nonperishable goods for the Hasbrouck Heights Food Pantry accumulating a total of 75 volunteer hours for the Troop. This is a record for donations for Troop 17, according to Fanego.
Boy Scouts fanned out across the borough on Saturday morning, picking up bags of non-perishable food from the porches and front steps of homes. The scouts brought the bags back to Borough Hall where employees restocked the pantry, and the overflow went into the Community Room.
The twice-annual food drive is in keeping with the values of Scouting, Scouts devote themselves to community service, following the third point in the Scout Law, “A Scout is Helpful.” Scouts seek to be of service to others.
