Photos and Story Submitted by Tara Thater

During this year’s Scouting for Food, the New Melle Scout Troop 856 collected, counted and sorted 6,547 items. Way to go, New Melle! The Scouts also had help from a parishioner who came by to see how it worked and pitched in to help, plus two Girl Scout Mariners, two grandkids, my mom, several drop-offs, a card from a donation offering “If you need more help please let us know,” and the St. Vincent de Paul pantry crew. Thank you so much for your support of this great cause. What a day, thank you NEW MELLE! 

Thank You!
