Scouting for Food 2017: Troop 284 picking up donations Saturday

Depending on where you are in West Seattle, you can donate to a food drive this Saturday without leaving your residence. Boy Scout Troop 284 is “Scouting for Food” again on Saturday, and you might have received one of their door-hangers. Here’s an update from troop parent Dwight Gilmore:

If you live on 30th SW through 34th SW, between SW Myrtle St. & SW Thistle St., Boy Scout Troop 284 (based at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church) would like you to know that for our Scouting for Food effort this year, we will be picking up donations for the West Seattle Food Bank this Saturday morning (March 18th).

If you live within the above-mentioned grid and would like to contribute, please leave your donations outside your front door by 8:00 am. In the unlikely event that we miss your donation (if it hasn’t been picked up by about 2 PM this Saturday), you can email me at, and I’ll see that it gets picked up by Sunday evening.

The most needed items are:

Canned meat
Canned beans
Peanut butter
Canned fruit
Canned vegetables
Spaghetti sauce
Breakfast cereal
Baby food/formula
Feminine products

Thank you in advance for helping those in need in our community!

Last year, participants donated about half a ton of food – see if you can top that again this year!

    We’re not within the collection grid but can we drop food somewhere on Saturday?

    Looking forward to this addition to the neighborhood.  “Australian wine and beer”???  Would love to see some bottle options from Two Meter Tall Brewery if possible.  Good luck with your new bussiness!

    Cub Scout Pack 793 is picking up on Sat as well.

    Start at 9am – and it’s NOT going to be a torrential downpour this time :)

    We’ll be in N Admiral area between Hill and Atlantic (N/S) and 48th – 44th (E/W) – starting at 9.

      If anybody and everybody who is picking up could please e-mail us so we can get it into our daily preview, that would be great – – thank you.

Sorry, comment time is over.
