Milford Scouts Pitch In For 16th Annual Thanks-for-Giving Food Drive

Help local families by coming out to support the Annual Milford Scouts Thanks-for-Giving Food Drive. Milford Scouts will help collect and sort food over the weekend so that less fortunate families can celebrate Thanksgiving. Troop 1 will host the event in conjunction with Milford Family Services. Local Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops will provide additional support.

The scouts camp out at Milford’s Wasson Field over two days, collecting and sorting food donations and staffing collection sites at local supermarkets. Scouts work round the clock collecting frozen turkeys, non-perishable food items, and monetary donations. The drive culminates with food deliveries to local families. Additional donations are distributed to charities, including The Milford Food Bank, Cornerstone Food Pantry, the John Rigley Food Pantry, Beth El Shelter, and others.
