Just about every scout in the Pack and their families contributed to the Frankfort Scouting for Food effort in November.  Scouts distributed 2,200 bags through Frankfort in early November. On November 10, the scouts delivered about 3,000 pound of food to the Frankfort Food Pantry.  We are very proud of our scouts for supporting our community in this worthwhile service project.
