Scouting for Food 2018: Boy Scouts to visit local neighborhoods in Spring Food Drive

Scouts Sean McLellan and Ryan Hazy prepare bags for distribution for the 2017 food drive.

Boy Scout Troop 282, chartered to North Kent Presbyterian Church, will be visiting local neighborhoods distributing bags and flyers for their annual Spring Food Drive to stock the shelves at the Lean on Me Outreach Center in Rockford.

Bags will be distributed during the week of March 12, 2018.  Residents are asked to fill the bags and place on their front porch by 9:00 a.m. Saturday morning, March 17 when the Scouts will return to pick up the donations.

Last year our community donated over 500 items for the drive and the Scouts hope to meet or exceed that amount this year.
