lbs. of food collected
This years scouting for food was a big success. Thanks to the boys willingness to pass out bags and parents driving on November 11 we were able to cover the whole town. The following week on November 14 we picked up bags full of canned goods. We then drove up to the Primeland scales to weigh the food bags that filled the whole back of a pickup, it weighted an amazing amount of 840 pounds. There are still bags of food coming in. If for some reason you missed us, please donít hesitate to bring a bag of food to the food bank. Keep an eye in the paper for more food drive opportunities.
We especially want to thank the community for being so kind and giving with all the food donations. The local food bank was very thankful for all the giving hearts in the community. It will mean a lot to those in need this year!
We will have pies, cookies. brownies and other goodies to compliment your Thanksgiving feast. Proceeds from the sale will go towards summer camp and the purchase of backpacks. Any questions call Shari at 962-3559 or Aleta at 962-3724.
