Over 806 non-perishable food items were recently collected for the North Kent Service Center (NKSC) by the families of Crestwood Elementary School. This year the Crestwood librarians and Cub Scout Pack 3285 combined their food drive efforts to help make an even bigger impact in their school. The food items were delivered just in time to help cover the extra needs of families serviced by NKSC during the spring break holiday.
