Barnegat Cub Scouts Collecting Toys, Clothing for Holiday Drive

Nov 19, 2018

Barnegat Cub Scout Pack has begun its “Giving Back for the Holidays” collection drive. The pack is collecting jeans, coats, jackets, belts, pocketbooks, shoes, boots, blankets, sheets, towels, lightly used toys, sleeping bags and stuffed animals. Erica Naimoli Capro, pack president,  said all donations will be gathered at her home at 27 Mutineer Drive.

“The residents have always been more than gracious over the years with helping with our mission of stopping hunger in Barnegat,” said Capro. “Many times we’ve gone to the food pantry, and the shelves are getting bare. We need to help them replenish, especially with the holidays coming. We’re hoping our community can make the holidays a little easier for families in need for the holidays.”

Capro said this is the fifth year of the drive.

“We’ve already donated 300 bags of non-perishable food items to the Barnegat food pantry,” she said.
