The Nazareth Area Food Bank is blessed in many ways by the breadth of support we receive from churches, schools, businesses, service clubs, other organizations and individuals in our community.
That list also includes Scouting organizations – both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts -- and their leaders who direct scouting activities.
Coming up on Saturday, Nov. 12 is BSA’s national “Scouting for Food” drive and we are fortunate that scouting organizations in the Nazareth area have designated our Food Bank to receive the non-perishable food items they collect that day. The Scouts’ donation usually is the single largest donation of food we receive during the year … and it’s all due to community participation.
Thanks much in advance to individual donors and to theScouts for remembering those in need in our area.
