Supplies Collection for WV Flood Relief a Great Success

Community support was awesome for Troop 143's collection of food, water and other supplies in relief of the West Virginia flood victims.  The 2.5 ton truck was completely filled by 6:00pm and the donations overflowed into another vehicle. An additional $260 in cash donations was collected and used to purchase first-aid kit supplies.  The Senior Partrol Leader and the Quartermasters, with help from their hardworking families, did everything from passing out flyers to collecting the donations and loading the truck.
