Thousands of items were picked up from the doorsteps of homes in Door and Kewaunee counties as a part of this year’s Scouting For Food Drive. Cub Scout and Scouts USA units spent the last two weeks distributing and picking up bags in efforts to fill the shelves of local food pantries in need. Troop 1042 and Pack 4042 in Luxemburg set a record for its units, collecting over 3,100 items to drop off at Marv Bins Food Pantry at Holy Trinity Church in Casco. Scout leader Dennis Legrave believes the pandemic could have actually helped with their successful food drive.
Pack 4112 and Troop 1019 from Algoma collected 1120 pounds of food during its Scouting of Food Drive while Voyageur District, which covers Door and Kewaunee Counties as a part of Bay-Lakes Council, collected 85,000 pounds of food at Lambeau Field.
