WEST WARWICK— About a dozen cub scouts from Pack 2 Natick gathered at the Gazeboo Saturday afternoon to pass out free food and drinks to anybody in need as the winter months begin to approach.

Scouts ranging from first to fifth grade held up signs along Main Street stating that free food was available for all those in need in the community. As they yelled out “Free Soup!” people began to gather underneath the gazebo to taste the plethora of treats.

Aram Hines, Den Master of the pack, explained that every month his cub scouts host a different themed event for the people in the community.

Because November is Thanksgiving month, he said the boys wanted to get together and throw a Thanksgiving dinner for as many people as possible.

“Unfortunately, the turkey is a little expensive and unfeasible so this was their way of giving back to the community and show that their thankful,” he said.

All of the food and drinks were donated from various restaurants and companies throughout town, Hines said.

The three soups that were offered to the locals in need were created at Millonzi’s Bar & Grille, West Valley Inn and by the cub scouts themselves.

Different types of bread were also donated by Michael Pinga from Westcott Baking Co.
