Thank you to the 21 Cub Scouts, 8 Leaders, and many parents who assisted with the Scouting for Food collection on Saturday, February 20th at Bishop's Thriftway.  Pack 1980 scouts collected a full SUV payload of non-perishable goods plus several additional boxes as well as cash donations to give to Readington Starfish.  The total efforts of Pack 1980 scouts at Bishop's Thriftway along with Troop 1969/Troop 199/Pack 199 Scouts at the Branchburg ShopRite led to a donation of approximately 3700 lbs of food.  Readington Starfish reports that they are overwhelmed with the generosity of the community. As a result, many will enjoy a bounty of food during the Easter and 4th of July distributions.
