The spirit of the holidays tends to make everyone a bit happier. It’s also a time to help those who are less fortunate. That’s why service groups like the Boy Scouts of America step up to help make a difference and give back to the community.
Scouting for Food is an annual event where troops across the nation gather food for donation and for delivery to local food banks. Wonder how it works? Troops distribute plastic bags to residences and businesses with instructions for filling the bag. The bags are then collected by the troops and delivered to a nearby food bank to help those in need.
Hilex is proud to support this program by providing the Boy Scouts of America with plastic bags used for the Scouting for Food program. It’s gratifying to know that we are supporting an organization that is giving back to communities in a way that is important during challenging economic times. Additionally, the entire Hilex family is proud to know that their 100% recyclable products are helping to bring food to those in need.
I, on behalf of Hilex Poly, would like to thank all of the troops and contributors who are participating with us in this year’s Scouting for Food program.
