Cub Scouts Help Fight Hunger
A record total of 1,742 food items were collected in November by Cub Scout packs 4 and 43 to benefit a local shelter. The collection was part of Scouting For Food, a national effort by Boy Scouts of America to feed the hungry.
On Saturday, Nov. 12, Cub Scout Pack 4, chartered to St. Agnes Catholic Church, distributed flyers for the program. The following Saturday, Cub Scout Pack 43, chartered to St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, collected the food, which included canned and dry goods. All items collected were taken to Wayside Christian Mission.
The local scouts are part of the Lincoln Heritage Council of the Boy Scouts of America, which serves 29,000 youth in 25 counties in north central Kentucky and southern Indiana. For more information, visit
