A group of local scouts is looking to support area veterans.
Today in Bellefonte, troop 35 from scouts BSA hosted their first-ever donation collection to help the VA home in Hollidaysburg. Some items that were collected include clothes, toiletries, batteries, and supplies. Members of troop 35 saw a need for help during the pandemic, and decided to step in while earning a community service merit badge.
“There is always a need of these services and these items, but right now a lot of people are hesitant to go out and a lot of people are not providing the donations they normally do. So the homes are in great need, because they’re short handed right now.”
Troop 35, along with other scout BSA troops in the area plan on having a food drive this coming November.
