The 38th annual Community Holiday Food Drive is coming Saturday. Local Cub Scouts and other scouts will leave food bags on doors prior to this weekend.
Residents can contribute canned goods (fruits, vegetables, tuna, stews, soups, stuffing mix, pumpkin, etc.) by placing them on their doorstop by 9:30 a.m. Saturday. Scouts will come by to pick them up between 9:30 and noon.
Organizers said the food will help provide a Thanksgiving dinner for over 1,400 low-income families in Philomath, Corvallis and Benton County. Monetary donations are needed for turkeys, chickens, eggs and other perishable foods.
Donations can be mailed to Community Holiday Drive, c/o Linn Benton Food Share, P.O. Box 1920, Corvallis, OR 97339.
