Boys Scouts kick off plastic bag food drive

Posted: Mar 10, 2018 1:53 PM Updated:

The Montana Council of Boy Scouts of America passed out bags on Saturday for their annual food drive.

Scouts were in and around Black Eagle tying the plastic bags to front doors.

Inside the bags were flyers asking people to place non-perishable food items on their porch by 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 17.

The Scouts' goal is to collect 22,000 pounds of food.

One person said this type of event is important for the community.

“I think it’s a good deal. It’s great for the community, like to help a lot of people out and stuff and I think pretty much everybody gets involved and fills the bags, so it’s a good deal for the Boy Scouts and everything,” Herb Chesterfield said.

This is the 24th year the Boy Scouts have participated in the event.
