When boys become Boy Scouts they learn the Scouts oath which states, in part, “to help other people at all times.”
With the idea of helping those in need, Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts recently collected food donations as part of a nationwide program called Scouting for Food.
Scouts in Hillsboro collected food donations by going door to door and leaving donation bags. They returned to collect the bags that had been generously filled by many Hillsboro residents. There were 1,393 non perishable food items collected by the Scouts. They delivered these items to the Scouts Chartered Organization, the First United Methodist Church of Hillsboro.
While Scouts are giving service, they are learning how to work with others to do something that is good for their community. If you would like more information about Scouting, you may contact the Hillsboro Cub Scouts at [email protected] or visit the Boy Scouts of America website, www.scouting.org.
