This weekend, Farmersville residents will have a tangible way to help their neighbors.
Boy Scout Troop 310, led by Scout Master Kyle Odom, will deliver bags to front porches across town Saturday, Feb. 22. Families are then asked to fill the bags with nonperishable food items and set them back on their front porches the following Saturday. Troop 310 will then collect the bags and donate the food to Farmersville food pantries.
Nonperishable items include canned meat, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, jelly, beans and granola bars. Other necessities like diapers and baby formula are also acceptable.
Odom asks that filled bags be placed outside by 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 29.
The pack is working with Brookshire’s to provide all the bags. They will not be the customary yellow bags as in the past.
