We are so thankful to have the help of the Boy Scouts each year! On Saturday, November 13, 2016, the Boy Scouts will be collecting food door-to-door throughout East Texas. The food collected in the Longview area will go toward Longview’s Thanksgiving Food Drive. In other words, food collected locally helps people locally. Wondering what to give? Check out the list above. The Boy Scouts also collect in other areas and give their food to efforts in those areas.
