Scouts collect food Saturday

News-DemocratNovember 15, 2013 

Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Webelos will walk and drive through the metro-east Saturday morning to collect donated food sitting on doorsteps.

Residents who received a notice or bag last weekend are asked to place donated nonperishable food items in a bag on their front porch for the annual Scouting for Food drive.

Scouts will begin collection around 9 a.m. Packs will take donated food to local food pantries. Residents who did not receive a Scouting for Food door hanger are encouraged to donate directly to local pantries.
