Scouts to hold annual food drive Saturday

November 08. 2012 11:49PM

MANCHESTER - Scouts throughout New Hampshire are participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive Saturday.

Last week, Scouts distributed door hangers around their communities to encourage residents to leave out nonperishable food and household items for pickup this Saturday. Scouts will return to pick up the items starting at 8:30 a.m.

The food will be distributed to more than 20 collection sites, where it will be sorted and distributed to more than 150 local food pantries and agencies.

If you received a door hanger, please leave your donations in a visible location outside your front door or by the base of your mailbox (please do not hang on or put in your mailbox) by 8:30 a.m. Please avoid donating glass items.

If you do not receive a door hanger or your items are not picked up, please consider bringing donations to the collection site closest to you.
