Boy Scout Troop 555 from Jim Thorpe will be assisting Cub Scout Pack 138 with the annual BSA Scouting for Food event on Nov. 9. The Cub Scouts will be distributing the tags in Jim Thorpe and surrounding developments to provide others with information on the event. The food will be going to the food pantries of St. Joseph's Church and Christ Lutheran Church in Jim Thorpe.

Those participating should make sure that the items are nonperishable and have not expired. The food will be collected at both churches between 9 a.m. and noon on Nov. 9.
