Carlile helps out Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of Alaska
April 20, 2016
Anchorage – Carlile trucks were part of a huge community effort in Anchorage Saturday, April 16, 2016. Staged at three Fred Meyer stores, Carlile trailers acted as collection points for the annual Scouting for Food drive. A long-time supporter of this important community event organized by the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of Alaska, the Scouting for Food drive gathers non-perishable foods, baby formula and diapers from the local neighborhoods.
In total, the 2016 Scouting for Food brought in 11,705 pounds of food and $2,958 in financial donations for Food Bank of Alaska to distribute through its network of food pantries and meal programs. That amounts to roughly 20,000 meals for Alaskan children, families and seniors in need.
Carlile has been a long-time supporter of this important cause, as well as a partner for many years with the Food Bank of Alaska. Throughout the years, Scouting for Food has raised more than a half a million pounds of food for Alaskans in need.> Back to News
