A local Boy Scout Troop has planned a service project to collect much-needed donations for the (ACTS) Food Bank.
The Food Bank' shortage comes at a time when more Oconee County families are in need of its services, The Oconee Enterprise reported. ACTS Chairman Reiny Hiss has made an appeal to churches and the community for an increase in donations, according to the newspaper's article.
Boy Scout Troop 149 is stepping up and doing its part to help.
Troop 149 will hold a food drive for non-perishable items in Butler's Crossing Shopping Center on Saturday, Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. until noon.
Items such as peanut butter, pasta, tomato sauce, cereals, soups, and other canned goods can be dropped off during that time.
For other ways to help, call 706-559-4559 or 770-725-2330.
