Scouting for Food

Clean out those pantries and gather some non-perishable food because the Boy Scouts are coming. This Saturday morning, November 15th, Boy Scouts of America will be visiting many homes across the country to collect food for shelters, churches and food banks. My son as a Cub Scout will participate in this annual drive. Please don't forget to put food on your front porch to have these great boys pick up your donation.

Not sure there will be a pick up in your neighborhood? You can enter your zip code here and call your local council to find out if the scouts will be in your neighborhood November 15th. You can also keep an eye out in your local newspaper for information. And some troops place reminder cards on your front door.

Please give if you can this year to any food collection participants. This year is proving to be especially hard on people who have lost jobs and/or have experienced natural disasters in their areas. I spoke to a representative from a local food bank last week and she stated that the need for food donations is up 20% this season.
