Scouts and the volunteer leaders are working hard to provide a vital service to a needy population. For instance the Scouting groups in Gales Ferry collected 5,400 food items for the Ledyard Food Pantry. In Willington 14 Scouts collected 6,700 for the Willington Human Service Department. More drives are occurring at the end of this month. For more information on the past drives or for future ones contact email@example.com.
