On March 30th, Nutley Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts conducted a food drive of non-perishables to benefit NFSB Food Pantry, and smashed last year's effort with a record of over 34,000 items! The town-wide collection, under the direction of Walt Smith, Pack 141 Chairman, was carried out by Boy Scout Troop 147, and Cub Scout Packs 141 & 142 with the help of a host of supporters: their families, troop & pack leaders, Nutley ShopRite and Trader Joe's, and of course, the robust contributions of Nutley residents. The Franklin Reformed Church generously provided the location to receive items and store them temporarily and Nutley Dept. of Parks and Recreation has offered access to space for overflow. In addition, an army of volunteers will put in hundreds of man hours in the following weeks to sort the items on cite & transfer them to the Food Pantry. NFSB salutes the Scouts and all of those who made this immense effort possible!
