Local Cub Scouts hosting food drive

 The Webelos Den along with their fellow scout’s from Coloma/ Watervliet Cub Scout Pack 610 is hosting a “Scouting for Food” drive beginning November 4.  They are asking our community to help support their drive by donating any non-perishable food items as well as any personal care items.

Please be on the lookout for scouts in your neighborhood beginning this Saturday, November 4, as they will be handing out plastic bags and “Scouting for Food” flyers to homes.

The scouts will be picking up the bags as well as any other donations on Sunday, November 26, 2017 between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.  The Webelos Den and their fellow scouts will also be set-up at the Coloma United Methodist Church on

Wednesday, November 15 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. to collect any donations that the community would like to drop off.

All donations will benefit North Berrien Food Pantry as well as local shelters to help those in needs during this holiday season.  Last season they collected, sorted and donated over 600 pounds of food and personal care items to the North Berrien Food Pantry thanks to the many, many wonderful people in the community that helped support their food drive.

This season, the scouts’ goal is to collect and donate 1,000 pounds of food… please help support your local Cub Scout Pack and Webelos Den!

To donate or schedule a donation for pick-up, please contact Caitlin Baltazar at 269-369-1153 or Tasha Baumeister at 269-259-2492.
