The Boy Scout Food Drive is scheduled for Saturday, February 6. We will be a collection site for this drive. Due to COVID there are several changes in place this year: 1) Food will be unloaded and taken directly to a tractor trailer truck parked on site; 2) No food will be weighed or sorted on site; 3) All activity will take place outside; 4) Protocols will be in place for social distancing; and 5) Masks will be required. We are in need of volunteers to unload the vehicles as they arrive and take the bags to the tractor trailer. We need 8 volunteers per shift: 9:30—Noon and Noon until 2:30. Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Wanda Kerns at: 704-608-3821 (text or call).
