Two Albion Boy Scouts, Jacob Thom, left, and Aaliah Knickerbocker went door to door this morning placing door hangers about a food drive.

The hangers are reminders for Albion residents to leave canned food and other nonperishables out next Saturday for Scouts to pick up for the local food pantry.

Jacob and Aaliah are both 10 and members of Troop 164 in Albion. Scouts throughout the county have out been out reminding residents of the annual “Scouting for Food” campaign.

The Scouts hung door hangers throughout Medina last week and then collected the food today and donated it to the local food pantry to help local residents in need.
