Boy Scouts collecting donations for last day of U Can Share food drive

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The South Plains Food Bank is making one last push to receive donations for the "U Can Share Food Drive."

More than 2,000 South Plains Boy Scouts will swarm the streets of Lubbock Saturday morning collecting food items.

More than 40 scout units will be participating in the annual "Scouting For Food" program.  All they ask is for you to leave your food donations on your front porch by 9 a.m.

If you received a door hanger on your door last Saturday, the Boy Scouts will be in your neighborhood.

Even if you didn't get a door hanger, you can still donate.  You can drop by any United Supermarket, visit the South Plains Food Bank, or give the Boy Scouts a call.

Nathan Baie, Scout Executive for Boy Scouts of America Lubbock, says community service is one of the founding principles of the Boy Scouts.

"We're just happy to be a part of a large campaign to benefit all of those that live in the Lubbock area," Bale said.

The South Plains Food Bank is aiming to reach their goal of 530,000 pounds of food by Saturday.

Chief Executive Office of the South Plains Food Bank David Weaver says there are people all around us that need our help. 

"They're your friends, your neighbors, they're people you see, you go to church with, you work with, your kids go to school with. So it's really important for this food drive to be successful. That's why I'm asking people to really look in their pantries a little bit more," Weaver said.
