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.”

  • Hauling hay makes me consider ATVs - July 28, 2014
    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
