The shelves are once again full in the Lord's Cupboard in Alta due to the help of the local Cub Scouts.
The Cub Scouts began their community service project by placing a grocery bag in the front door of every home in Alta. The bags contained a note explaining that the Cub Scouts would be around on the following Saturday to pick up the bags filled with groceries.
"The boys seem to enjoy doing it and I think some of them do understand what they're doing and how they're helping others out," Cub Scout leader Marty Paup said. "It's good to know that we're helping the community."
The Cub Scouts collected 85 bags of groceries last Saturday that they then donated to the Lord's Cupboard, which then distributes the food to those who need it.
"We're glad to be of service," Paup said. "The community helps us out with fund raisers and we like to help them out and thank them for giving the food so that we can give it to somebody that can distribute it to those who need it."
According to Paup, the Lord's Cupboard was pleased with the timing of the Cub Scouts groceries as their cupboards were starting to get low.
"We really appreciate it," Sue Geyer, a Lord's Cupboard volunteer said. "We always get a lot of cooperation and a great response from this community."
The Lord's Cupboard is a community run project that includes volunteers from every church in Alta. The Lord's Cupboard serves needy people in the Alta community and those with an Alta address.
The Lord's Cupboard collects grocery items and other personal need items so that those who need it have a place to come get it.
"It really does a lot of good," Geyer said. "Everything here is donated and serves those in the community."
