Boy Scout troop plans food, pop can drive

Boy Scout Troop 17 issued a reminder to area residents of their upcoming food and pop can drive.

Residents are asked to have non perishable food items, as well as any redeemable cans or bottles on their front steps by 9 a.m. April 19. Scouts have had a lot of inquiries as to when this event will be, therefore the early reminder.

All proceeds from the pop cans will be used to help fund the upcoming Hamilton County Cub Scout Day in mid-June, as well as other scouting activities, and all food items will be donated to Upper Des Moines Opportunity to help local residents.
