HUNTLEY – The Huntley Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturing Crews will be walking door to door throughout Huntley neighborhoods today to collect donations for the Grafton Food Pantry.

Residents can expect a Scout at their front door between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Scouts will accept grocery items and monetary donations for the Grafton Food Pantry, 11481 Allison Court, Huntley.

The donation drive is a part of the Scout’s annual Scouting for Food, an effort that aims to end hunger and teach children the importance of community service. The Grafton Food Pantry serves Huntley, Lakewood and portions of Lake in the Hills, Algonquin and Crystal Lake.
