Scouts collect food to donate in Exeter and Milligan

Cordova Troop 359 and Cub Scout Pack 218 recently participated in the Scouting for Food event in conjunction with the Cornhusker Council.

Cub Scout Pack 218 distributed flyers all over Exeter and Milligan asking residents to leave donations on food out on Saturday morning.  The Pack and the Troop picked up the donations.  In total, 468 pounds of food were collected in the two villages.

The food was delivered to Blue Valley Community Action in Geneva for use in their food bank.

 Troop 359 Boy Scouts received a little help picking up the food Saturday morning.  Pictured from the left are Scout Jack Dinneen, Doug Thomsen and Scout Elliot Erdkamp.
