Scouts from Pack 213 collected food to donate to the Oxford Presbyterian Church's Christmas food box project.
Earlier this month, Cub Scouts Pack 213 collected canned goods for Christmas food boxes in Oxford. On Nov. 9, the scouts distributed 400 grocery bags in Oxford. On Nov. 16, they collected canned goods and delivered them to the Oxford Presbyterian Church.
Pack 213 consists of Tigers, Wolves, Bears and Webelos I & II, ages 6 to 11.
Oxford Presbyterian Church will be providing Christmas dinners for needy families in the Oxford area on Dec. 21. Last year, food boxes were given to 141 families.
