Scout Crew 308 recently took on a project to collect food and raise awareness for the “End 68 Hours of Hunger” program in Dracut and Dracut Rotary Club lent its aid to the cause. The club presented a check, in support of their drive, to members of Scout Crew 308.
“End 68 Hours of Hunger” is a public non-profit effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school Friday and the free breakfast they receive in school the following Monday. This program puts nourishing food in the hands of school children to carry them through the weekend. Each bag of food costs $10 each week and provides two breakfasts, two lunches, and three dinners for a child, with some left over to share.
“End 68 Hours of Hunger” has been a longtime cause of Dracut Rotary Club, and they salute Scout Crew 308 on the success of their recent drive, according to Club president, Diane Clark. She noted that the Club was happy to lend its support .
