Local scouts team up for Good Turn Food Drive

Penn’s Wood Council of the Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of Talus Rock Council have once again teamed up for this year’s Good Turn Food Drive. The Good Turn Food Drive is a project to collect canned and packaged foods for neighbors in need.
This Saturday, November 11, local Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts will “invade” area neighborhoods, armed with bright orange door hangers telling the citizens of this food drive. Scouts will distribute these hangers which have listed items most needed by the local food banks. This reminder can be hung on a kitchen cupboard.
Next Saturday, November 18, the scouts will reappear to collect the bags of food for the food bank. The local food bank is located at the Wesley United Methodist Church on Logan Avenue at 12th Street. Mrs. LeVonne Angelo is the coordinator of the local food bank and is blessed with numerous volunteers, most of whom are senior citizens who assist her with this ministry.
Once again Kopp Drug will serve as a drop off point for the food bank. On pick-up day, there will be a drop off cart in the parking lot for the areas not covered by the scouts. After Saturday, donations may be dropped off at Kopp Drug until Thanksgiving.
Please use this opportunity to help out neighbors in need by buying extra groceries and having them ready for collection on November 18. Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts from Troops sponsored by Church of the Good Shepherd, Bald Eagle United Methodist Church, Warriors Mark United Methodist Church and St. Matthew’s Roman Catholic Church will be working together to perform this most needed community service.
