Boy Scouts and Salvation Army Collecting Canned Goods in the Canyon

The Boy Scouts in our area are partnering with our local Salvation Army to try to stock up the food pantry before the holidays. This weekend (November 13) scouts will be dropping off paper bags on our porches. If you'd like to help, fill the bags with canned goods and simply leave the bags in a visible place at 9am on the following Saturday, November 20th. The bags will be picked up without disturbing your Saturday at all. Last year this canyon donated 1 ton of food to the Salvation Army... Pretty amazing. The scouts are looking forward to our help again this year. Remember...pickup is 9am November 20.  So fill those bags.  And thanks in advance!
