The Nevada Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America will conduct an upcoming food drive.
“Scouting for Food” door hangers will be left on area home door knobs Saturday by local Boy Scouts. The scouts will return to pick up requested food items from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 10. All donated food will be distributed to local food banks in the region through Project MANA in an effort to gear up for Thanksgiving holiday needs.
If residents miss the pick up time for the planned Scouting for Food campaign, items may be dropped off at any Chase International Real Estate office from Saturday through Nov. 10. Chase International offices are located throughout the area. According to Chase representatives, an undisclosed donor has agreed to contribute $1 for every pound of food collected, up to a total donation of $1,000.
Food items needed include canned meat, canned fish, nuts, peanut butter, dry pasta, powdered milk, baby formula, baby food, stews, soup, ravioli, chili, canned fruits, canned juice, oatmeal, rice, and any other nonperishable, nonfrozen food. Glass containers will not be accepted.
Chase International drop-off food donation sites include Zephyr Cove, Highway 50; Glenbrook, 2070 Pray Meadow Road; and South Lake Tahoe, 2074 Lake Tahoe Blvd., Suite 6.
