Manhattan Beach Cub Scout Pack Collects 670 Pounds of Food, Care ItemsDec 29, 2020 11:26AM ● By Jeanne Fratello
Congrats to the young scouts in Manhattan Beach Cub Scout Pack 713, Den 8, who collected 670 pounds of food and personal care items in a recent food drive.
The boys sourced donations from community members, and then worked together to collect, weigh, and deliver the items.
The items collected went to St Paul's Project: NEEDS in Redondo Beach. Project: NEEDS offers two main services to those in need in the community: A Tuesday evening hot meal, available to anyone, and a food pantry (on the first and third Thursday) that distributes groceries to families and homeless people twice a month. Currently Project: NEEDS serve an average of 85 meals every Tuesday, and approximately 400 families per month through the food pantry.
Pack 713 is made up of boys and girls from Pacific, Grandview, Robinson, and American Martyrs schools. The pack is made up of dens (smaller groups of grade-level scouts).
Pack 713, chartered by the Manhattan Beach Rotary Club, has a long and proud history in Manhattan Beach, including the founding of the Pinewood Derby.
