As many of you know the Thanks 4 Giving Food Drive has been an important event in the Scouting Districts and Greater Milford/Orange/West Haven/Woodbridge Community. For the last 17 years, the Thanks for Giving Food drive has provided food to more than 2600 Milford families and provided support to more than a dozen different food distribution charities. Sponsored by area Scouts the principal beneficiaries of the drive include the Milford Food Bank, John Rigely Food Pantry, Cornerstone Food Pantry and Food2Kids. More than 150,000 pounds of food and 4,800 turkeys; and $37,000 has been raised to help feed those in need.
All interested volunteers and leaders from participating Boy, Cub or Girl Scout units and church representatives should reach out and let us know you’re interested in helping.
