Local Boy Scouts 
plan food drive

Published: Tuesday, March 5, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

The Boy Scouts’ Kishwaukee District of the Three Fires Council is hosting a food drive Saturday.

Residents who received a door hanger and flier this weekend can place nonperishable food, soap, baby food, diapers and paper products in a bag marked “Scouts” on their front step by 9 a.m. Saturday, and the scouts will pick it up, according to a news release. The scouts cannot accept home-canned goods, glass containers or open containers.

Those who live in rural areas or did not receive a flier are encouraged to drop donations off themselves at local pantries. The scouts will be taking donations to The Salvation Army in DeKalb, the Sycamore Methodist Church and other pantries.

For more information, call 815-513-2722.
