Fairmount Food Pantry Christmas Food Boxes

Once again Boy Scout Troop 282 helped the Fairmount Food Pantry fill over 200 Christmas Food Boxes December 16, 2016 at 7:30 PM. And yes, once again, with the donations from fellow scouts, scouters and a major donation from one of our families, the troop was able to purchase 95 percent of the food that went into the boxes. As usual, it was a cold, rainy and freezing night for everyone to get out. The troop would like to thank those few scouts and leaders who came to help fill boxes. Your hour of time during this busy time of year will ensure that over 200 families will have a Christmas dinner. 

I cannot think of a better way to help other people ( part of the scout oath) than to make sure they have a meal for Christmas Day, a day of celebration and a day for families to become closer. Just think what type of day it would be without food to feed your family.
