Boy Scouts collecting food to help Kingman neighbors in need

KINGMAN – In response to the growing need to feed more hungry families in these uncertain times, the local Boy Scouts of America are conducting a Scouting for Food Drive in Kingman on Friday, April 24.

Food will be collected at the The Salvation Army Kingman Service Center, 1200 E. Andy Devine Ave., from 8 noon, and at the Kingman Area Food Bank, 2930 E. Butler Ave., from 8 1 p.m.

“During these trying times, we understand that The Salvation Army is running out of food to distribute to families in need,” said Patrick Ballinger, south field director for the Boys Scouts’ Las Vegas Area Council. “We appreciate the opportunity to continue our long-standing partnership, especially in these difficult times.”

People are encouraged to drive through and make “no touch” donations of nonperishable food like canned meats, vegetables and fruit; peanut butter and jelly; pastas; jarred or canned sauce; boxed ready-to-cook meals, and more.

“What the Boy Scouts are doing is an amazing example of community in action,” said Lt. Colonel Kelly Pontsler, Salvation Army southwest divisional commander.

Monetary donations can also be made at or by texting ScoutingForFood to 51555.
