The Coupeville Boy and Cub Scouts held a two-weekend event to aid the Gifts From the Heart food bank.

The boys left door hangers and bags on over 125 homes throughout Coupeville and the Rolling Hills Community Saturday, April 8.

The hangers explained what types of items the food bank needed and that the boys would be back the following Saturday, April 15, to pick up their donations.

In all, 16 scouts participated. Forty-three bags and several cases of drinks were collected, totaling approximately 350 pounds of food.
