Scouting for Food

Marion Cub and Boy Scouts are Scouting for Food until November 11. Kids in town will be approaching your doors again soon. But this time, they won’t be ringing doorbells or looking for Halloween candy. Marion Cub Scout Pack 32 and Boy Scout Troop 32 with the generous support of their charter organization St Gabriel’s Church of Marion, The Marion Police Department, and The Marion Police Brotherhood are once again collecting food for community members in need. Neighbors with a scout in their vicinity will be left a door hanger at their home on Thursday, November 8and a scout will return to pick-up donations on Saturday, November 10. All you have to do is leave a bag or box at your door and the Scouts will deliver it to the Food Bank. For those community members around town who would like to support this effort but do not have a scout living near by, the scouts will be collecting donations at the Marion Police Department and St. Gabriel’s from now until 11:00 am on November 11. Following the Veteran’s Day Ceremony, scouts will bring all donations to a local food bank.

As Scouts, we know how fortunate we are to have a warm meal every night — whether around the campfire or at the kitchen table. And we know that not everyone is so lucky. Please help our scouts do their good turn daily by providing healthy, non-perishable food for those in need. Dietitians suggest donating a variety of nutritious items, such as cans of chili, soups, tuna, pasta sauce, peanut butter, evaporated milk, fruit, and vegetables. This gives hungry families more of what they need. Please no glass items, no open containers, and no frozen items.

Please contact us at with any questions or to join scouting.
