Scouting for Food is this Saturday
March 17, 2016
The "Scouting for Food" program is underway, and Scouts have been busy distributing door hangers throughout the state. Here in Summit County, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will be collecting thousands of donated items on Saturday, March 19, and delivering them to local food banks.
Thomas Heffron, who has been in charge of the Summit County program for the past 20 years, said those who have received a door hanger should have their donations placed out by 9 a.m. Saturday. Try to have it in a visible and easily accessed location, he said. Due to the size of Summit County and the limited number of Scouts, not every home will be canvassed. But you can still donate items any time to our local food banks. In Park City, food can be donated to the Christian Center of Park City. In Kamas and Coalville, you can donate to the Community Action Agencies.
Items of special need this year are: ready to eat meals (i.e. chili, stews, canned spaghetti, etc.); peanut butter; and dry goods like macaroni and cheese, Rice-A-Roni, and cereals. Of course soups, canned fruits and vegetables, pastas and tuna are always needed. Disposable diapers and baby foods are also greatly appreciated. Personal hygiene items are also accepted.
