Scouts strive to beat food drive record

THOMASVILLE — Local Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts members are joining forces this weekend to collect food for their annual Scouting for Food drive.

Last year, the Scouts collected over 6,300 pounds of food during the drive and this year they hope to best that record. The drive began Jan. 26 and will end this Saturday. Many of the Scout groups kicked off the event last Saturday at  Beef-O’Brady’s with a pancake breakfast fundraiser held by Troop 306. 

Scouts, leaders and parents went to selected neighborhoods in Thomasville and Thomas County and distributed food donation bags along with an explanation note to all the households in the neighborhood.

With bags hung on the front doors of the homes, the note that went with each bag explains who the Scouts are, why they are asking for the food donation, where will the donation go, what types of food are sought and when the bags will be picked up.

See Friday's edition for more details.
