Did you find a bag on your door knob last Saturday? The Boys and Girls Scouts are hoping you will fill them up with canned goods and/or used clothing and put them out on your porch.

Scout troops will be back around starting at 9:00 a.m. Saturday to pick up your donations. It's expected that 100 tons of food and clothing will be collected this weekend and then sorted and distributed to area food pantries and goodwill stores. It's a perfect time for re-stocking pantries that haven't had big donations since the holidays.

If scouts did not hang empty bags on your door, you can take your donations to any TOPS store on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00p.m., you'll see scouts at the stores. Also, area Wendy’s Restaurants will accept donations through March 30.
