The Boy Scouts of America Troop 45 and Cub Scout Pack 38 from the Milbank area helped restock the shelves of the Grant County Food Pantry. They held their annual Food and Sight Drive on Saturday, October 29.
During the city-wide drive, the groups collected 911 items for the food pantry. Troop 45 also picked up and sorted 1,185 pounds of potatoes donated by Eloise and Warren Falk. In addition, 61 eyeglasses and hearing aids were collected and given to the local Lions Club.
“Food donations were down a little this year,” noted Scoutmaster Jeff Loutsch. “I’m not sure if it is due to the economy or the rainy day on pickup day. Despite that, we thank the Milbank community and the Falk family for your generosity.” If you missed this opportunity to donate to the pantry, items are still being accepted by Heather Rise at the Grant County Courthouse.
