To the editor:
How many Scouts and adults does it take to make a successful food drive? For Troop 18 and Pack 16 of Cazenovia, the answer is 54. Scouts, Webelos, adult leaders, and parents of Troop 18 and Pack 16 joined forces to collect 2,059 food items donated by Cazenovia residents as part of the Scouting for Food drive on Saturday Nov. 13. Once again residents of Cazenovia demonstrated their generosity which resulted in our second highest amount of food collected since we began participating in Scouting for Food in 1995. All food was delivered to CazCares, the local food pantry. We wish to thank the residents of the community for their generous donations, MacKinnon Liquors who provide the Scouts with boxes in which to sort and transport the food, and Dunkin' Donuts for donating donuts for the workers. We are grateful to the Scouts, Webelos, adult leaders, and parents of Troop 18 and Pack 16 without whom we could not have reached out to the community.
