ORONO, Maine — The Boy Scouts of Troop 478 Orono-Veazie gave an early Christmas present to Crossroads Ministries in the form of a truck filled with food. On Dec. 16 – 17, the troop organized a food drive at Bellâ€™s Orono IGA and the customers generously responded by donating non-perishable food items or cash. Scouts, leaders, and parents from the troop, as well as some Cub Scouts from Pack 47, helped make the effort a success by greeting customers, collecting the donations, transporting them to Crossroads Food Pantry and stocking empty shelves.
Crossroads Ministries is located at 2 Wood Street in Old Town, Maine, and serves the needs of many in the surrounding areas. They operate their food pantry with the goal to end hunger, one family at a time, as well as support those in need of clothing, shelter and encouragement.
The Scouts and Brenda Davis, on behalf of Crossroads, express their gratitude to Bellâ€™s IGA and all the customers for their donations, which will help feed our neighbors in the cold months ahead.
