Scouts from Steilacoom’s Boy Scout Troop 71, Pack 71 and Girl Scout Troops 9877 and 332 will begin their Fall Food Drive campaign later this month.
More than 40 scouts will distribute grocery bags to be filled for this annual food collection drive, said Art Rebillion, Scout Master for the Steilacoom area.
Saturday, Oct. 21 is the date for bag distribution. Filled bags will be collected, starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28.
Food donations will help stock the shelves of the Steilacoom Food Pantry on Chambers Street. Besides food donations, the Girl Scouts will be collecting dental supplies for a “Tooth Fairy” project.
They’re seeking donations of toothbrushes-particularly for kids-says Troop Leader Karen Hobbs-and also dental floss and toothpaste.
For information about the Food Pantry, please phone the Community Center at 581-1076.
