Scouts Team Up With Catholic Charities to Collect Thanksgiving Foods

Boys and girls of Scout Pack Troop 7322 and Girl Scout Troop 89 are teaming up with Catholic Charities & The St. Vincent’s Programs to continue a Reno tradition that’s been ongoing for more than 40 years. The “Scouting for Food”  holiday food drive will be held this Saturday and Sunday,  Nov. 9th and 10th,  at St. Albert the Great Catholic Church at 1250 Wyoming Avenue, Reno, Nevada 89503. Scout members will be collecting donated food items before services. The food, any Thanksgiving type you’d like to donate, will benefit clients of St. Vincent’s Food Pantry. Last year, the Scouts collected a record 6,000+ pounds of food, which is enough to provide more than 5,000 meals to local people in need.
