Cub Scout Pack 242 collects 663 Food Items


GILMANTON —  Thanks to the generosity of the community and the hard work of members of Cub Scout Pack 242 and their families, Pack 242 collected 663 nonperishable food items Nov. 9 as part of the Scouting for Food program.

Scouts around the state hung signs on doors November 2 which promised they would return November 9 to pick up nonperishable food items. As part of the Good Turn project, this year's "Scouting for Food" effort will benefit more than 150 food pantries, kitchens and closets throughout New Hampshire.
