Scouts Gather Food to Fill Salvation Army's Pantry




A Cub Scout wearing a hat much too big for him hands a yellow bag to a woman walking into Smith’s, hoping she’ll bring it back with at least one can.

A few seconds later, an older man drops off a few cans in a yellow bag the boy handed him 10 minutes before.

“Thank you, sir,” the man says to the Scout. “You’re a good salesman. I only came here for a cup of coffee, ya know.”

More than 8,000 Boy Scouts and Scout leaders handed out 425,000 bags and worked 27,000 man hours over the past week for the 25th-annual Scouting for Food Drive.
