Andrew Scraggs Completes Eagle Scout Project for SGP!
Andrew Scraggs, Troop 3, Jersey Shore Boy Scout Council
Andrew designed and built an emergency, outdoor food box at St. Gregory’s Pantry. He met with SGP director Sandra McIntyre and St. Mary’s By-the-Sea church leaders to propose the project and it was completed at the end of May.
St. Gregory’s Pantry is very grateful to Andrew! He gave his time and talents to build this beautiful outdoor food pantry to serve those in the community while the pantry is closed. It is open 24/7.
We appreciate you, Andrew! Thank you from all of us at St. Gregory’s Pantry. You have made a very positive impact on your community. Congratulations on your Eagle Scout Award!
St. Gregory's Pantry - Serving Our Community
We are open for curbside pickup and deliveries. The food drop-off area during our Monday – Friday, 10am – 12pm hours, is on the Atlantic Avenue side of St. Mary’s by-the-Sea, lower level. If you would like to drop off non-perishable items at any other time, they may be placed in the box by the parking lot door (off Bay Avenue).
There are no indoor pickups or drop-offs at this time. All volunteers will do their best to maintain social distancing.
