Scouts will collect food for pantries

Boy Scouts of America is collecting food for the food pantries in Boone, Platte and Colfax counties during May.
This year, due to COVID-19, the Boy Scouts will not be going door-to-door. They will only be taking donations at the drop-off locations.
For Boone County — the drop-off is the Old Fire Hall at Fifth and Church Streets downtown. Canned food can be dropped off there Friday, May 15, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and on Saturday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
For Newman Grove — Food Pantry, items can be dropped off on Saturday, May 16, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the food pantry.
For Lindsay — Food items can be taken to B & B Repair and placed inside the trailer with the orange Scouting for Food sign on Friday, May 15, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Contact Brad at 402-920-3529.
When dropping off at these times, donors are asked to place their items in the trunk of their cars and scouts will remove the items for you.
When arriving, they are asking you to stay in your vehicle to help keep the scouts safe.
