Page D4 (34) Bucks County Herald January 5, 2012 Riegelsville Scouts set record for food drive The holiday season became a little brighter for some local food bank clients after Boy Scout Troop 127 of Riegelsville collected and delivered more than two tons of groceries, plus cash, toys and med- ical supplies, during their 2011 Scouting for Food campaign. The goal of the troop's annual holiday food drive is to help support low-income families in need. On Dec. 3, the Scouts distributed paper grocery bags door-to-door to homes throughout Riegelsville and Finesville, N.J., plus local churches and the U.S. Post Office in Riegelsville. One week later, they retraced their steps, collected the bags - now filled with food and other items - and delivered them to The Lord's Pantry at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Ottsville and Finesville Methodist Church Food Pantry in Finesville. The Scouts collected 4,610 pounds of food; in addition, they received two cases of medical nutritional supplement drinks (valued at $140), three large boxes of new toys for children and $160 in cash. The groceries and other gifts arrived at the Ottsville and Finesville pantries just in time to help a steadily-rising number of low-income residents prepare for the holidays. Together, these two pantries currently serve a combined total of about 1,300 people each month, a 300 percent increase since the beginning of 2011. The 2011 collection of 4,610 pounds is a new record for Troop 127. In their first Scouting for Food project in 2008, the boys gathered 2,350 pounds of groceries; in just four years, that amount has doubled.
