The troop collected several pounds of food. Checks and cash were also donated to the group to purchase additional food.
West Texas Food Bank representative Paige Phelps said, with holiday season approaching, the already high need for food is growing even more.
"Because of Sandy a lot of food has been diverted to the north east for emergency food, so we really need people to help us here, because national donors are going to the emergency situation which we understand, but we also have an emergency situation here right in the Permian Basin," said Phelps.
Other Boy Scout troops headed out all across Odessa collecting food, some even going door to door asking for donations.
