Antrim / Bennington
Scout food drive to begin Nov. 2 with ‘door hangers’
A food drive to benefit the Antrim-Bennington Food Pantry begins Saturday, sponsored by the Antrim and Bennington Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts.
Paper “door hangers” will be distributed Saturday to make residents aware of the drive. Pick up of donations will take place on Nov. 9.
The Antrim and Bennington scouts organize two of these events each year, one in November and one in March.
This November, Troop 2 and Pack 2 join scouts across the nation participating in the Scouting for Food drive to fill up pantries in need before the holidays.
Residents who receive a notice on the door are asked to put out their food items by 9 a.m. on Nov. 9.
For any bags that do not get picked up, contact Jared Lewis at 831-9364 and arrangements will be made for pick up.
Collection boxes will be located at the Bennington Country Store, Antrim Marketplace, and Rick & Diane’s Pizzeria on Nov. 9 for food donation drop-offs.
