Pandemic Challenge Met By Eagle Scout Project In Arlington

This year’s Eagle Scout project took a different spin with the advent of coronavirus. Charlie Gaylord has built a “Little Free Pantry” outside the Arlington Central Library to meet the increased need for supplemental grocery assistance during the pandemic. He said the pantry is about a 4×4-foot wooden box meant to hold non-perishable items like canned goods and cereal to be donated to Arlington County Food Assistance Center (AFAC). Gaylord said AFAC comes by regularly and picks up the food.
