A few weeks ago, Lion Allen received an email from the Hoonah Chief of Police stating that the senior center's food shelves were bare and could he help.
Lion Allen jumped right on it and got his Boy Scout Troop 247 involved. We also enlisted the help of the Juneau Lions Club along with a girl scout troop. On Tuesday, October 29, the Boy Scouts and Lion Mike N. participated in a Food Drive at Super Bear where they collected between 10-15 packing boxes full of donations.
Meanwhile, he Juneau Lions Club did their own thing and went shopping and bought tons of food stuff. I understand the Girl Scouts also collected food.
In the end.... they got TONS of stuff to ferry over to Hoonah! I don't have any pictures to share, but it sounds like the Boy Scouts food drive was a complete success.
This is people helping people. Thanks to all who participated!
