Every year the people of the Eureka Springs area show their generosity to the needy around us by helping Scouts bring in food and filling up the shelves of our local food bank, the Flint St. Fellowship.
This year was no exception, this year was like no other that many of us have ever seen before! I have been a part of the “Scouting for food” drive for 32 years now, and this year I realized that I had not seen it all, even though I thought I had.
We are in the middle of a pandemic for goodness sakes, and then the day the Scouts were to bring in the food, it’s raining, it’s pouring down rain really, really hard! I thought “oh my,” but then the miracle happened!
I do believe that more food was collected this year than ever before. The kindness and compassion is truly awe inspiring, and in the midst of all that is going on in the world, in our nation, I think that this is a pretty darn good place to be!
Thank you to all for your kindness.
