Boy Scouts in central Virginia
are collecting food to help feed hungry families.
Scouts went door to
door in Albemarle County's Redfield's neighborhood to drop off food donation
bags. They're asking people to
fill those bags with non-perishable foods to donate to the Blue Ridge Area Food
One scout says it's a way
for the troop to chip in and help the community.
"We're putting these
on people's doors to help them donate food to the food bank for people who need
food and this is a cool activity because you get to walk around exercising
while you're actually doing something really important for the food bank," said
Boy Scout Mark Cutright.
The scouts will return
next Saturday to pick up the bags and drop them off at the food bank.
