Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America Celebrates 25th
Anniversary of Scouting for Food – Nov. 4-9, 2013
SANTA ANA, Calif., (Oct. 17, 2013) – In November, the Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America will celebrate 25 years of helping to fight hunger in Orange County with its Scouting for Food drive. Proceeds from the program will go to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
Warehouse store chain Smart & Final has taken a lead role in the drive this year by accepting food donations from November 4-9 at local participating stores during store hours, with Scouts manning food donations at local Smart & Final stores on Saturday, November 9th. Additionally, consumers can donate five dollars at Smart & Final stores to provide a bag of food and personal care items for those in need throughout the community. Grocery chain Stater Bros. will also participate in the drive at designated locations on Saturday, November 9th only.
“Smart & Final is proud to be part of the 25th annual celebration of the Scouting for Food drive, an outreach program that provides caring help to those in need in Orange County during the approaching holiday season,” said Dave Hirz, president and chief executive officer, Smart & Final.
Scouts will visit homes in their local neighborhoods seeking food donations on November 9th for the Scouting for Food drive. In addition, people are encouraged to take food donations to a local Smart & Final or Stater Bros. participating store during designated days and store hours.
Started in 1988, Scouting for Food has grown over the past 25 years, collecting more than five million pounds of food to fight hunger. Most-needed food items sought for the drive include: canned meats; beef stew; pasta; macaroni and cheese; canned fruits and vegetables; canned juices and soups; hot and cold cereals; and peanut butter. Personal care items sought are: diapers; toothpaste; toothbrushes; deodorant; toilet tissue; razors; cotton swabs; soap; adhesive bandages; combs and brushes; and feminine hygiene items.
An annual Scouting for Food commemorative patch for 2013 was designed by a local Orange County Scout, Tyler Wu, Troop 700 in Aliso Viejo, Calif. For more information and questions on store locations, contact Rachel Cueva at 714.546.8558, x132 or visit the website at www.ocbsa.org.
