Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and the Emmet County 4-H clubs are joining together to build the Emmet County food pantry supply.

Estherville residents received a bag with their Estherville Spirit on Oct. 16. Citizens are asked to collect paper, personal hygiene or non-perishable food items in the bag, or any other bag for those who live out of town. Place the bag on the doorstep by 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 19, and a member of Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or 4-H will collect your donation between 5-6 p.m.

Could helping out be any easier?

All donations will be taken to the Emmet County Food Pantry.

Items the pantry needs include peanut butter, cereal, macaroni and cheese, pasta, hamburger casserole mix, pancake mix, pancake syrup, canned fruit, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, dish soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, diapers and tissues.

These three organizations help develop America’s youth to become responsible, self-reliable and respectful citizens.

In the U.S., there are currently 819,882 Cub Scouts, 943,426 Boy Scouts and 6.5 million 4-H members.

Let’s not disappoint that Boy Scout, Cub Scout or 4-H member when they stop to pick up the food pantry donation.
