Scouts to collect food donations Saturday from Laurel front porches

November 08, 2011

Laurel Boys Scouts will collect grocery sacks of donated non-perishable food from front porches on Saturday, Nov. 12 in the yearly Scouting for Food effort.

Cub Scouts distributed white, plastic grocery sacks to front doors in Laurel neighborhoods last week, and those sacks can be filled with donations and left on front porches for collection by 9 a.m. Saturday. Donations can be made in any grocery sack; mark the bag "Scouting for Food." Do not include glass containers.

Scouting for Food, in its 25th years, is orchestrated by the National Capital Area Council Boy Scouts of America, Capital Area Food Bank, WUSA-TV, Safeway and the Washington Examiner.

Laurel Scouts will take their collected donations to Elizabeth House, Laurel Advocacy and Referral Services and other local food banks.
