Members of Boy Scout Troop 829 and Cub Scout Pack 829 will spend Sunday afternoon, Dec. 9, collecting canned goods for the Youngstown/Porter Community Christmas Baskets. The collection effort will start at 2 p.m.
Local residents who are not planning on being home that day are asked to leave their donation by the front door for the Scouts to pick up.
Food items may also be dropped off at the Red Brick School Village Center gym Monday, Dec. 10, to Friday, Dec. 14.
The Christmas baskets will be delivered to members of the community on Saturday, Dec. 15. Scouts thank area residents for their generosity to the needy during the holiday season.
