Over 40 Scouting units (Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Venturing Crews) in Bergen and Passaic counties, the Ramapo Valley District donated half of 24 tons, 48,000 pounds, of non-perishable food to CFA. Many thanks for your hard work. We'd also like to give a special thank you to the Inserra Supermarkets, the volunteers and other supporting business for making this collection of food so successful.
“Scouting doesn’t operate in a bubble. Community outreach and engagement is an important part of our program, and today was a great example of teamwork not only between Scouts, but also between the Scouting Community and other local service organizations,” said Joe Mertens, District Executive with the Northern New Jersey Council. “Everyone who contributed today, whether it was a donation, logistical support, or helping load the trucks, should be proud of the impact we were able to make.”
