Scouting for food drive

February 22, 2007

Canned and packaged non-perishable food items are needed to help supply the Eudora Ministerial Alliance Food Pantry, housed at St. Paul United Church of Christ, Eighth and Church streets.

Between March 20 and March 30, Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and Eudora 4-H Club members will be distributing food drive informational fliers and special "Scouting-For-Food" bags to each home in Eudora.

Eudora residents that want to participate are asked to place packaged and canned non-perishable food items in the marked bags and leave them on their front porches by 9 a.m. March 31, when they will be picked up by Scouting and 4-H Club members starting at 9:15 a.m. If the marked bag is lost or not received, any paper or plastic bag or box marked "Scouting for Food" may be used.

If the Scouting for Food bag is lost or not received, any paper or plastic bag marked in big letters, "Scouting for Food" can be used.

If items are not picked up by 2 p.m. March 31, call John Scott at 542-3510, and arrangements will be made for pick up.

The Eudora Scouting groups have participated in this community service project since 1988. Since Eudora continues to grow, members of the Eudora 4-H Club were invited to help in 2005, and agreed to participate.
