BSA Troop 145 Makes Food Donation

Submitted by John Cistaro

Scout Troop 145 of Clark, NJ rallied together while social distancing to fill 175 bags of food and $550 for Food For Friends in Rahway. Each Scout was given 10 bags, which were generously donated by ShopRite in Clark. They sought out neighbors, family and friends to fill the bags with non-perishable items for donation to the food pantry. Each donation was designed to be contactless, which ensured the safety of the Scouts and our community.

Ted McKeown, Scoutmaster, said of the service project, “Our Troop loves to provide service to our community, and this project was a great way to give to those in need.”

Boy Scout Troop 145 is an active Troop of young men who dedicate themselves to the values of Scouting while learning and having fun in a safe environment. Scouting teaches leadership, citizenship and volunteerism, as well as appreciation for the outdoors. Most of the Scouts in Troop 145 achieve the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout.
