Boy Scout Troops Help Collect Food

Each year Boy Scout Troop 91 of Stanhope with the help of Troop 151 of Byram join forces to help eliminate hunger.

Food bags are dropped off at homes in the community of Stanhope by the Boy Scouts. The scouts return the following weekend to pick up all the food donations from the generous residents of Stanhope and deliver them to St Michaels Church in Netcong. The food donations are then sorted by the scouts and put on shelves in the church pantry so that they can be packaged for families in need on Thanksgiving Day.

It is a community service project that Boy Scout Troops 91 and 151 look forward to each year because the scouts know the food will be very welcome on the dinner tables for children and their families.
