Scouting for Food until Veterans Day

Marion Cub Scout Pack 32 and Boy Scout Troop 32 with the generous support of the Marion Police Department are once again collecting food for community members in need. Neighbors with a scout in their vicinity were left a door hanger at your home on Saturday, November 4 and a scout will return to pick-up donations on Saturday, November 11. All you have to do is leave a bag 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 nearby, the scouts will be collecting donations at the Marion Police Department from now until 11:00 am on November 11 and at the Veterans Day ceremony where the scouts will have a truck to place donations. After the Veterans Day Ceremony, scouts will collect all donations from the police station and 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.
