Members of Cub Scout Pack 801 held a food drive Jan. 20 as part of a day of service commemorating the birthday and memory of Martin Luther King Jr.
Led by Pack leader Stephen Ng, the food drive was held at Douglas MacArthur Elementary School to benefit the nonprofit organization ALIVE!
Founded in 1969, ALIVE! is the largest private safety net for the needy in the city of Alexandria, addressing short-term to long-term needs for those less fortunate in the community. ALIVE! serves thousands of Alexandrians annually with shelter; low-cost early childhood education and childcare; financial help for rent, utilities, medical care and other critical needs; emergency food; and deliveries of donated furniture and housewares.
