The pickup date for the 24th Annual Boy Scout “Scouting-For-Food” food drive in Lawrence is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.
Cubs, Boy Scouts, and Ventures delivered fliers to all homes in their areas between April 7 and April 14, asking people to donate food items and place them in plastic bags or boxes on their porches after 9 a.m. today. Because Lawrence is so large, all areas will not be covered. In areas not covered, people are encouraged to bring their donations to the Salvation Army, 946 N.H., or any other community food pantries.
The Spring 2010 Boy Scout food drive in Lawrence provided over 5,200 items of food for distribution to the five food pantries that chose to be involved.
