Cub Scouts collect food for students in need


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Cub scouts with Wesley United Methodist Church collected food this weekend to donate to several Winter Park Elementary School students who spend most weekends hungry.

Scouts left empty bags on doors last weekend, and picked up the donations this weekend.

"These children will hopefully have enough food to provide for them and their family so when they do come back to school on Monday morning, they have been well fed," said Pack 226 Cub Master Matthew Collins.

Pack 226 gathered over 1,500 pounds of food. The scouts plan to collect more donations for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
