Scouting for food

SoVaNow.com / November 21, 2012
Dear Viewpoint:

On Nov. 3, the Cub Scouts of Chase City participated in “Scouting For Food” to benefit the Chase City Food Pantry. 643 pounds of non-perishable food items were collected. A BIG thank you to all those who helped us.

The Food Pantry’s mission is to assist Chase City residents with food when they have an emergency situation. We operate solely on donations and due to the present economic situation we are experiencing more requests for help. If you were unable to donate and would like to, it is not too late. Donations may be left at First Baptist Church at 206 E. Second Street in Chase City between 9 a.m.-1 p.m., Monday-Friday or call (434) 372-0153 to arrange pickup.

Chase City never lets us down and we truly appreciate everyone’s willingness to help.

Thanks so much,

Sandy Suslick, Chase City Food Pantry
