With the cancellation of this year’s Boy Scouts “Scouting for Food” drive due to the COVID-19 pandemic, St. Louis area labor unions are stepping up and conducting a food drive among union families to support local food banks.

“We’re asking all working union members do their part to help those who are, or will be, in desperate need because of the circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said a joint statement from St. Louis Labor Council President Pat White and St. Louis Building and Construction Trades Executive Secretary-Treasurer John Stiffler.

The public is also invited to participate.

Five strategically located union halls have been designated as food drop-off points, where union volunteers will collect donations from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11, and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 12.

South County’s drop-off point is Laborers Local 110, LiUNA, at 4532 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

The St. Louis Labor and Building Trades Councils, along with area’s Labor Clubs, the United Way and the Greater St. Louis Boy Scout Council will distribute the donations to local food banks.
