Boy Scout Troops 476,425,413 and Pack 435 collected about 1,200 items during the combined troops’ food drive for Faith in Action recently.

“In terms of money collected, this was the most successful food drive I’ve participated in,” says Bonnie Hartsuff of Troop 476, who estimated more than $3,200 in items were collected thanks to the generosity of shoppers at Polly’s Country Market.

A total of 26 scouts and parents worked in this food drive, including:

  • Troop 476 – 12
  • Troop 425 – 11
  • Troop 413 – 1
  • Pack 435 – 2


A staff member from FIA emailed Hartsuff following the food drive and was told the “Scouts are Unbelievable.”

She said the infusion of food and goods was a great way to get FIA “off to a good start this summer. What a blessing you all are.”

Hartsuff wanted to thank everyone who gave of their time last Saturday to help make this food drive a huge success.
