Scouting For Food Gearing Up

Scouting For Food

The door fliers have been distributed now and local scouts and scouters are organizing for the big pick-up Saturday morning as the young men go from door to door in their annual Scouting for Food drive.  Amy Brooks of the Jackson Food Cupboard says the annual food drive yields critical contributions to the cupboard.  She says things are very slow for people this time of year and the seasonal jobs are coming to an end.  Additionally, she says the food stamp program has been cut back dramatically, and she anticipates the cupboard will see a greater demand because of that. Brooks says unlike some years ago, the scouts are not distributing plastic bags for the collection since they tended to frequently blow away and litter the town.  She asks that those making donations simply use the grocery bags they receive in their own shopping.  Scouts will be making the rounds about 9:00 am and residents are ask to have the bags of groceries on their front porches in time for the collection.  If not, Brooks says, “You might hear a knock on your door if you haven’t put your bag out – so don’t be alarmed if you see a [young] cub scout there, standing at your door hoping that you’ll give him a bag of food.”

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife. And even offer suggestions to the Game and Fish Commission when we think there are better ways to ensure that […]

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
