Weekend Food Drive In Milford Described As A Big Success
(Milford)-- A food drive over the weekend in Milford is being described as a big success.
Organizers of this past Saturday's “Scouting For Food” says the drive brought in more than 1,000 items that were donated to the Upper Des Moines Opportunity food pantry in Spirit Lake.
Sunshine Foods of Milford also donated $100 toward the effort through funds raised during a special promotion late last week, allowing for additional items to be donated to the drive.
Officials with the Milford Cub Scout Pack 67 and Milford Boy Scout Troop 170 say it was one of their largest food collections in recent years.
