Local Boy Scouts Help Hurricane Victims

Neighboring communities receive support after being hit hard by storm.

Troop 163 and Pack 163 of Rockville Centre held a large food/supply drive for Hurricane Sandy victims last month.

Approximately 50 scout families distributed flyers regarding the drive to every home on their block. Some distributed to even more homes, up to 60 homes per scout.

On the Saturday after the storm, the troops organized a large drop off at their recreation center. Five SUVs stacked to the roofs were collected and distributed directly to the Rockaways, East Rockaway and Oceanside and Long Beach.

We took this quick snapshot - and there were at least 15 people behind the camera who were camera shy, but all were there to lend a hand.

The above article was submitted on behalf of the units and the Iroquois District of the Theodore Roosevelt Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
