Every spring the local scout packs and troops participate in the “Scouting for Food” service project. The local scouts will collect food door to door on Saturday, March 27, 2010 from 9 am until 12 noon. The scouts dropped off plastic bags and fliers at most local in-town residents doors this week in hopes of residents being able to donate some non-perishable goods to the food drive. All proceeds of the local drive will go directly to the Grand Rapids Food Shelf located at the Second Harvest Food bank.
Please set out donations on Saturday morning by 9 am so the scouts can pick them up. There are also drop boxes at local churches and businesses in case your pick-up gets missed. Donations can be dropped at the Medicine Shoppe, Ogle’s Market Place Foods, Zion Lutheran Church, St. Andrew’s Church and St. Joe’s.
Please help with this worthy cause if you are able!
