PHOENIX, January 30, 2018 – Boy Scouts of America Grand Canyon Council will be collecting food to support Arizona food banks in serving those in need throughout the state. This past weekend scouts distributed door hangers to let their neighbors know about the drive. Saturday, February 3, 2018, Scouts revisit the houses to pick up bags full of food that will be delivered to their local food bank.
“The holiday season is behind us, but the need for food is year- round and events like Scouting for Food is very important to help food banks remain stocked to serve those in need,” St. Mary’s President and CEO Tom Kertis said. “We are grateful to scouts across Arizona taking part in this drive and the way they give back to their communities. We urge those who can to support this drive by leaving donations of non- perishable food for the scouts to collect.”
