Greenwich Scouts Collect 6,000 Lbs of Food, Neighbor-to-Neighbor Grateful

Submitted to Greenwich Free Press by Nancy Coughlin, Executive Director of Neighbor to Neighbor

To the editor:

ImageNeighbor to Neighbor would like to congratulate and thank the Greenwich Council, Boy Scouts of America for their tremendous success during their recent “Scouting for Food” drive benefiting Neighbor to Neighbor.

Particularly at this time of year, food pantry shelves run bare. Yet thousands of Greenwich residents rely on us in every season for healthy food to feed their families and make ends meet.

ImageWe are fortunate to have such dedicated young men, who collected over 6,000 pounds of food on March 1st.

Thank you also to the Glenville, Cos Cob and Sound Beach Fire Departments and Christ Church Greenwich, for graciously acting as collection points.

Thank you to State Rep. Fred Camillo, Honorary Chair of this year’s drive, for your dedication to ensuring all our Greenwich residents are taken care of.  We invite the public to visit our food pantry to see firsthand the impact our hundreds of volunteers have in our community, and to make a difference by following the lead of the Boy Scouts in giving back.  Thank you!

ImageNeighbor-to-Neighbor’s food pantry urgent needs include:

 

  • Cereal
  • Canned Fruit
  • Pasta
  • Peanut Butter (regular sized jars please)
  • Jelly

In addition to donations of food and clothing, Neighbor-to-Neighbor is always in need of sheets and towels. Funds to buy food are always welcome.

Neighbor-to-Neighbor is located in the Christ Church Annex at 248 East Putnam Ave in Greenwich
