The local Boy and Cub Scouts will be collecting bags of food Saturday morning at 9 a.m. as part of its “Scouting for Food” Drive. Clear plastic bags were hung on door handles throughout the community last weekend. Those wishing to contribute may leave the filled bag in clear view at your front door to be picked up. All donations will be taken to the Grant County Food Pantry for distribution to needy families in the community.
Donated items requested include non-perishable food items, toiletries, paper goods, and eyeglasses and hearing aids, which will be donated to the Lions Club.
Anyone unable to leave a donation Saturday morning can deliver food to the courthouse Monday through Friday.
