Don't Forget to Leave Canned Food Donations for Boy Scouts Saturday
Homeowners should leave nonperishable food donations on their doorsteps by 9 a.m. Saturday.
From first grade Tiger Cubs to 17-year-old Eagle Scouts, boy scouts of all ages will visit local neighborhoods this Saturday to collect donations for the annual Scouting for Food campaign.
Collecting almost 400,000 pounds of food last year, the 2010 drive was the most successful Scouting for Food program in the history of scouting in Southeast Michigan.
Last Saturday, local troops left thousands of plastic collection bags on the doorsteps of homes throughout Macomb Township. On Nov. 12, scouts will return to collect the bags. Donations will benefit Gleaners Food Bank.
Homeowners should put donation bags on their doorsteps by 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 12.
