This year’s annual Scouting for Food was a resounding success with 3 local Troops participating.
Troops 99 and 1847 are sponsored by the United Methodist Church in Washington.
Troop 99 collected a total of 1967 lbs. Troop 1847, an all girl scout troop, collected 2358 lbs.
Troop 21 is sponsored by First Christian Church in Washington.
They took a little different approach this year and collected at Food Pride in Chocowinity and Piggly Wiggly on River Road in addition to picking up some neighborhoods.
They collected a total of 3390 lbs. The also had collection jars at both locations and brought in an additional 500 dollars cash!
The total, so far this year is 7715 lbs and Troop 1847 still have some cans left to bring in.
Thanks to all the Scouts, and their parents, for working on a cold, rainy February day to make this happen.
Another big thanks to all the Eagles Wings volunteers who worked all day Saturday and Monday to sort and store all of the food so we are ready for our regular distribution tomorrow morning!
