Boy Scouts are old school, and they do things the old fashioned way.

Turns out that method is still as good as any other.

Last Saturday five members of Cup Scout Pack 236, Den 3 took to the streets of Washington Township and sought donations for the food pantry in the Long Valley Presbyterian Church.

By pounding the pavement that morning, Scouts Evan Corwin, Luke Thomas, Joey Ferraro, Frankie Ferraro, Tommy Weinert, Kennth Lazorchak, and Tyler Fraumann filled the trunk of an SUV and brought it to the food pantry to help fill the shelves.

The fourth-graders may have worn out the soles on their shoes that day, but they made a difference in the community that many families will be grateful for.

Scouting for food is a time honored service project and one that was sorely needed to help the Food Pantry. Congratulations to a caring Den who saw a need and did something about it.
