Scout project paves the way for annual summer food drive
When he found out the Somerset Area Food Pantry ran dry in the summers, Boy Scout Tylper Kupczak decided to do something about it.
Kupczak planned an annual Somerset Food Drive as his Eagle Scout Project. The drive, held on July 21 in the Somerset Royal Credit Union parking lot, brought 2,200 pounds of food and $1,300 to the Somerset Area Food Pantry.
"It was definitely a rewarding feeling when we delivered the food," said Kupczak. "I couldn't stop smiling for a while."
