Cub Scouts Go Door-To-Door Collecting Food For Gainesville Ministries
Many North Central Florida organizations are finding different ways to help the community.
The Cub Scouts of Gainesville went door to door Saturday morning, hoping to collect enough canned goods to donate to local ministries. The group has donated 1,500 pounds of food so far.
Cub Scout Pack 71 spent the morning knocking on doors and leaving empty grocery bags for residents to donate canned goods.
"As cub scouts and boy scouts, we're celebrating 100 years of scouting in America and what better way to do that than to collect food for the hungry and back to their community," Pack 71 Leader Danny Bowers said.
On Saturday March 27, they will collect the full grocery bags and donate them to Grace United Methodist Church.
Last year, this cub scout pack alone donated over 2,000 pounds of food.
