Scouting for Food Moves To Online Format


Area residents are being asked to help raise money for local food banks by donating money to the “Scouting for Food” campaign, now through March 31st.  Normally, area Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts representing Twin Valley Council go door to door asking for canned food donations, but this year Scouts are not able to do so because of the COVID-19 virus.
