On Saturday, Nov. 3 Boy Scout Troop 94 and Cub Scout Pack 94 will be out distributing door hangers as a reminder they will be around to collect food donations on Saturday, Nov. 10, as part of Scouting for Food.

This the largest one-day food drive coordinated by the Boy Scouts of America. The Scouting for Food effort is important since many area food bands are experiencing significant food shortages this year. All local food donations stay in our local communities.

Have your food donations out on your porch by 8 a.m. The Scouts thank you in advance for your support.
