Scout food drive triples donations


N-Food-Drive

The Boy Scouts of Troop 222 from Cedar Springs held their annual food drive on Saturday, March 16 at Family Fare. Eleven Scouts collected 570 nonperishable items, including food, hygiene products and laundry supplies. Patrons of Family Fare donated individual items, carts filled with groceries and cash. The scouts learned the value of community service and the value of clipping coupons! The cash that was collected was used to purchase additional needed items with coupons and the “Ten for $10” sale. The generous support from the local community was outstanding and donations were almost tripled from last year’s 200 items. All items were donated to the Cedar Springs Community Food Pantry.  Community members in need or wanting to contribute additional donations can contact the pantry at (616) 696-1140. Thanks to Family Fare, community members and all that continue to support Scouting.

On April 14 and 17, the Cedar Springs Lions Club planted 400 Red and White Pine seedlings along the White Pine Trail between 16 and 18 Mile Roads. This is the area that the Lions Club maintains. A portion of the trees also went to three locations on the school grounds.

Volunteers that helped plant the trees included Cub Scout Troop 3222 and Boy Scout Troop 222. “They did a great job,” said Lions Club member Jerry VanderWal.
