Boy Scouts Donate Nearly 12,000 Pounds of Food To St. Mary’s During 2012 Scouting for Food Drive

More than doubling their total from last year, the Phoenix and Westside Boy Scouts taking part in the 2012 “Scouting for Food” Food Drive had a successful day on Feb. 5. With more food coming in from other packs this week, St. Mary’s has already received 11,779 pounds of non-perishable food items for the hungry of Arizona.

Scouting for Food will collect hundreds of thousands of pounds of food across the country as a result of this drive to benefit the hungry of America. St. Mary’s salutes the work of not only Boy Scouts of America Grand Canyon Council but their leaders and parents and thanks them for their annual efforts to make a difference in the community.
