NEWPORT - No matter how cold it gets this weekend, boy scout troup 63 in Newport is camping under the stars for a good cause.
It's their annual camping for food event, collecting donations for the Newport Community Food Bank.
The scouts are all set up outside the Newport Shop n' Save. They're prepared with tents, fires, and food to last them through the weekend.
All they ask is that you drop by and donate canned goods or non-perishable items so they can fill their trailer.
In years past, they've had to empty the trailer as many as five times to fit all the donations.
They'll be there through noontime Monday, so make sure you stop by!
