Boy Scouts Organize Food Drive to Benefit Local Food Pantries

Wood County, Ohio, October 11, 2018 – In the spirit of the Boy Scouts of America promise, “to do a good turn daily” and “to help other people at all times,” the Erie Shores Council of the Boy Scouts of America will organize their annual “Scouting for Food” non-perishable item food drive in Wood County (Ohio) during the week of October 20-27, 2018.

Scouting for Food is the Boy Scouts of America’s longest running nation-wide service project to help stop hunger. It began as one Scout’s service project in St. Louis, MO in 1985 and was nationally adopted in 1988.

Twenty-five units comprised of Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Exploring Posts, and Venture Crews located in Wood County will partner with Girl Scouts USA to distribute informational tags by October 20th. The tags will include the local unit serving your area and a list of acceptable donation items. Wood County residents are asked to leave their donation on their front porch by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 27, 2018. The items will be picked up and delivered to food pantries and shelters located in Wood County.

Scouting for Food is supported by Frisch’s® Big Boy® Restaurants of NW Ohio and also Keystone Press.

 

The week of October 20-27, 2018 non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the Wood County locations of Frisch’s® Big Boy® Restaurants to include Wooster St. and Main St. in Bowling Green, Route 20 in Perrysburg and Woodville Rd. in Northwood.
