Food pantry thank you

To the Editor:

Thank you does not begin to express the gratitude we have for what a wonderful job the Boy Scouts did for the Harvard Food Pantry.

On March 9, the boys collected almost 5,000 pounds of food for their Scouting for Food Drive. We were overwhelmed and appreciated every item that came through the door.

The Boy Scouts also helped our volunteers with sorting and putting away all the items. The Harvard Food Pantry cannot thank enough the Scouts and their parents who stayed and helped us.

A very special thank you goes to the community we live in. We are grateful to live in a community that is supportive, caring and compassionate for our cause and making the Boy Scouts’ food drive so successful.

From all of us at the Harvard Food Pantry, we thank each and every one of you.

Donna Dixon

President, Harvard Food Pantry
