Volunteers needed for food drive

Sylvan Lake Girl Guides and Boy Scouts are teaming up for a food drive Oct. 17

Sylvan Lake Girl Guides and Boy Scouts are teaming up for a food drive Oct. 17, with hopes to make it to every residence in town, said Brownie leader Judy Scanland. Brownies are a branch of Girl Guides for girls aged seven to eight.

Scanland is looking to community youth groups and leaders for help with the drive. The drive has been a “huge success” the past five years, said Scanland, but more volunteers are needed to continue the pattern.

For those wishing to make a donation, Scanland said all foods are needed and appreciated. Cash donations are also accepted.

Those looking to lend a hand can contact Scanland at (403)887-4371, and meet at the Memorial Presbyterian Church prior to the drive.
