Thank You Letter: Social Ministries

All of us at Montague Catholic Social Ministries want to extend our heartfelt appreciation to Cub Scout Pack 16 of Deerfield for their outstanding effort during their “Scouting for Food” Drive. Because of them, our Basic Needs Program has an additional 1,300 pounds of food to distribute to those in need.

Under the leadership of Cub Scout leader, Lillian Russell, participating Cub Scouts, Logan and Ritchie and Boy Scouts, Ryan, Alex and Jordan spent two Saturdays in November dropping off bags at people’s homes with a note asking for help for those in need and picking up filled bags one week later. Through their hard work and the generosity of their neighbors, on Nov. 23, 250 bags of food were distribute to MCSM and The Survival Center.

With cuts in SNAP benefits and increases in heating costs, it can be especially difficult to make ends meet. Thanks to Cub Scout Pack 16, our pantry is now better stocked to help our neighbors who find themselves in an emergency situation.]
