Curtis Family Scouts Collect Lots of Donations in Carrollton Manor

The Curtis family of Carrollton Manor has three dedicated Scouts: Kellen Curtis is with Boy Scout Troop 857, Cian Curtis is with Boy Scout Troop 855, and Shannon Curtis is with Girl Scout Troop 10178. They wanted a project where they could do some good for their community, so they decided to do a Carrollton Manor food drive. We couldn't believe how much food they collected! They dropped off more than 30 bags and boxes filled with food, toiletries, and baby supplies, plus $47 in cash! Thank you for your generosity!
