Coffee drive underway for Mont. VA hospitals

Scout Troop 212 from East Helena will be collecting cans of coffee to be served in local VA Hospitals at the Helena Walmart through Nov. 19. Donations will be accepted as cash or cans of coffee at the front entrances or at customer service. The goal is to collect 2,000 cans of coffee for our veterans.

The troop has done this community service project for over five years and this one event provides coffee to every VA hospital in the state of Montana.

Two years ago, they built a coffee shed to house the donated coffee at the VA in Helena. Each year they collect more than 1,500 cans of coffee along with cash to pay for gas for volunteers to deliver the coffee throughout Montana.
