Cascade Eagle Pathfinders Collect Food Donations For Thanksgiving and Christmas

The North Cascade Eagles Pathfinder Club, of Burlington, Wash., dropped off empty grocery bags in mid-November to nearby neighborhoods asking for food donations.

The Pathfinders returned to pick up the bags two days later and received 74 bags of donations. This community donation was a significant part of putting together several Thanksgiving food baskets for neighbors in need.

Pathfinder members braved the wet and rainy weather to get this job done and sorted the incredible amount of food. Leaders and Pathfinders alike were amazed by the generosity of the neighbors including some who added a second food bag in addition to the one provided.

The Pathfinders also had the opportunity to help with this project once again in December and assisted in delivering the food baskets just before Christmas.
