Hawk Mountain Council Boy Scouts holding annual Scouting For Food program

Hawk Mountain Council Boy Scouts of America will be holding their annual Scouting For Food program. On Saturday, Nov. 4, Scouts will be handing out door hangers.

On Saturday, Nov. 11, Scouts will return to collect the donated non-perishable food items left outside and take them to a convenient drop-off location within their communities.

If you receive a door hanger, please make sure to leave your donations in a visible location outside your front door or by the base of your mailbox (please do not hang on or put in your mailbox) by 8:30 am on Saturday, Nov. 11. Please avoid donating glass items.

If you do not receive a door hanger or your items are not picked up, please consider bringing donations to a local food pantry, the Greater Berks Food Bank or to the Hawk Mountain Council at 5027 Pottsville Pike, Reading.


Please place your donated items in plastic grocery bags or boxes and attach the door hanger to the container.
