Boy Scouts canvass Lamorinda neighborhoods for food drive
Submitted by Charles Regan
Youth from local Scouting organizations were observed canvassing Lamorinda neighborhoods on Saturday, Nov. 10. The uniformed Scouts distributed informational door hangers to residences promoting the 2018 Scouting For Food program benefiting the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.
Keep an eye out for the uniformed Scouts again on Saturday, Nov. 17 as they return to neighborhoods to collect food donations from participating residents. This year's goal is to maximize community involvement and all residents can participate by simply contributing a single non-perishable food item. Participation is easy; residents who receive a door hanger can place their nonperishable food donations outside, in a recycled bag or box marked with the door hanger, in view of the street by 9 a.m. this Saturday morning.
Residents who did not receive a door hanger can participate by delivering their nonperishable food items directly to local designated collection sites on Nov. 17 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Moraga at 3776 Via Granada, Moraga or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Pleasant Hill at 555 Boyd Road, Pleasant Hill Road. Food donations benefit Food Bank programs.
