On December 17, we held our first-ever canned food drive. We were fortunate to get permission from Key Food, a local grocery store, to set up a table right out in front of the store.
The food drive was incredibly successful! In addition to donations of over 70 pounds of non-perishable food, Chapter 13 made nearly $200 in donations, which we turned over to City Harvest, a local food pantry.
The scouts had a great time making up their own chants to the tune of christmas carols. One of our favorites was "Jingle Cans". Another was "Deck the Halls with Cans of Mackerel". Special thanks to the shoppers of Astoria for their generosity this holiday season.
Great job, Chapter 13!
