Scouts from Wakefield, Winside and Wayne will be out gathering items such as canned soups, peanut butter & jelly, canned tomatoes, canned beans, pancake mix & syrup hamburger helper, dry potato flakes, mac & cheese, cereal, oatmeal, etc. Along with toiletry supplies such as shampoo, tooth paste, toilet paper and diapers are also welcomed.

Wakefield – Scouts will pick up items on Monday, April 16 starting at 5:30 p.m.

Winside – Scouts will be picking up items on Friday, April 20 after school gets out.

Wayne – Scouts will collect food items along with their monthly paper & can drive pick up on Saturday, April 21 at 8 a.m.
