Scouts get partner in food drive
Bags and baskets to be collected Saturday
Peabody Boy Scouts will have a helping hand with their annual food drive Saturday.
Members of Troop #108 will be collecting bagged food from front porches beginning at 9 a.m. Nonperishable items such as soups, canned vegetables, peanut butter, jelly, spaghetti and sauce, canned meats, boxed meals, beans, cereal, and oatmeal should be placed in plastic bags and placed so they are visible from the street.
However, an alternative is available at Peabody Market. Shoppers can buy similar items and put them in a donation basket by the checkout counter.
All donations will benefit the food bank at Peabody United Methodist Church.
People with bags of food put out that are not picked up can call Carol Smith at (316) 772-1274.
