If you see young boys in uniforms scouting the neighborhood on March 23 it’s all good as the Boy Scouts of America is kicking off its annual community food drive.
Scouts of all ages will be going door to door in the coming weeks to ask for food with a goal to collect more than 85,000 pounds of food donations for local food pantries.
According to a statement from the BSA, Long Island’s pantries and soup kitchens were hard hit by the aftermath of super storm Sandy and the quest is to replenish needed supplies.
Every March, the Boy Scouts of America in Suffolk County holds a food drive to help the pantries restock after the hard winter months and passing holidays.
For information on where you can bring food donations, please contact the Boy Scouts of America in Suffolk County at 631-924-7000, ext. 110.
