Members of Pack 432, 'Eagles' Webelos II, spent a portion of their Saturday gathering food for the Oregon Food Bank. Participants include, from left, Charley Rowland, den leader, Keiren Pinto, Ethan Braun, Cameron Rowland, Ian McMillan and Hubert Pinto, a Scout dad. All of the scouts are 10 years old and students at Uplands Elementary School. This is the fourth year this group of scouts has participated in the food drive, Charley Rowland said, adding that he estimated the scouts collected about 220 pounds of food for the food bank. Altogether, about 20,000 pounds of food was collected in the metro area Saturday by about 20 different scout groups.
