Scouts from all Ridgefield BSA Troops made a $2500 donation to the Ridgefield Food Pantry last week. Tony Phillips, Director of Social Services accepted the check presented by Troop 76 representatives Spencer Carlson and Evan Kaye.
"It's a great effort by everyone in Ridgefield" stated Carlson. "People donate their deposit bottles and cans in our bins. Scouts sort them and put plastics in one bag, cans in another and then they're hauled to the redemption center. All those $.05 deposits add up and then Scouts donate everything back to those in need right here in Ridgefield."
