Scouting for Food Modifications for 2020
The leadership of the Greater St. Louis Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, after careful consideration of the rapidly rising COVID-19 cases, and to ensure alignment with the rapidly changing guidelines from health departments and political leaders, has made the decision to modify the annual Scouting for Food drive. As is always the case, the health and safety of Scouts, leaders, and parents continue to be most important.
Because of this last-minute change, Scouts will NOT distribute Scouting for Food bags on Saturday, November 14th, and with no bags out, Scouts will not be picking up bags on November 21st.
Donations this year are going to be more important now than ever before as food pantries are always in need and the holiday season inflates that need and the current virus conditions have amplified that need even more. So there are still options available to help out and donate.
Ways to give:
Food collection drop-off locations in Park Hills will be located at Harps Food Stores in Park Hills and the Park Hills Public Library. Please make all donations before Saturday, December 12th.
You may also donate through our text-to-give campaign – Text "SCOUTFOOD" to 91999 to donate
