Supporting our local heros!

Summer 2020
The scouts chose to give to the heroes of our community who put them selves in harms way to help us all. Some of the money they earned for summer camp thru Wreath Sales and Father's Day Pancake Breakfast was used to put together snack boxes. These boxes were distributed to Winthrop Hospital, Nassau County's 3rd Precinct, Mineola's Ambulance Corp, Dept of Public Works, Water Dept, and Post Office.
