Eagle Scout candidate sets food pantry collection record
Local Boy Scout member Clarke Cagle has set a food pantry collection record by gathering 4,058 pounds of non-perishable food items for Interfaith of The Woodlands.
"The success of the food drive was really made possible with the help of my friends, members of Boy Scout Troop 1772, family and neighbors," said the aspiring Eagle Scout in a media release.
"Many of the residents we approached gave generously to the effort. It was amazing to see everyone come together to help the needy in our community."
The record two-ton-plus donation enabled Clarke to earn the coveted Eagle Scout medal and badge, a feat only accomplished by one percent of all Boy Scout members.
"I am thrilled that Clarke selected Interfaith of The Woodlands to benefit from his Eagle Scout project," stated Dr. Ann Snyder, president and CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands. "Clarke is an inspiration to other young people and obviously a future leader. We are
extremely grateful for Clarke's support of Interfaith and his dedication to our community."
