I would like to praise Boy Scout Troop #153 at St. Anastasia Parish in Douglaston for their ongoing contribution to the church and to the community.
I have been a Cub Scout, Boy Scout and an Explorer Scout and truly understand what these boys do to make a better community due to their dedication to serving others. As past grand knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council #5911, I have worked closely with these boys who have helped my council with our blood drive, and will help us out again on Sunday June 8.
Now the troops are collecting donations benefiting the military veterans of St. Albans. The center is in need of the following: face cloths, toothpaste, toothbrushes, men’s body wash, men’s shampoo, men’s deodorant, men’s shaving cream, and men’s foot powder.
They need these items by June 20. The drop-off locations are Douglaston French Cleaners at 242-01 Northern Blvd and Home N.Y. Real Estate at 40-60 Douglaston Parkway.
If a pickup is needed, call Scout Leader Tom Tuffy at (718) 224-2516. Cash donations are also accepted.
Thank you to all that can give to this most worthy project.
