Boy Scouts go Scouting for Food

Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts will collect donations for Red Wing Area Food Shelf Saturday Dec. 14 as part of their annual Scouting for Food campaign. Scouts will distribute flyers about the drive to local neighborhoods Dec. 7 before returning a week later to collect donations and deliver them to the food shelf.

Donations should be placed in bags in a location clearly visible from the road by 8 a.m. Dec. 14. All types of food are needed, but please no perishable items or glass jars.

Kwik Trip coin donation drive on now

Kwik Trip stores across Minnesota are hosting their second annual coin canister donation drive to support the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. Residents and businesses can make monetary donations at any Kwik Trip now through Dec. 24. Monies raised at each store will be used by the Salvation Army to support individuals and families in the local community.

Enjoy lights, donate food and gifts

Celebrate Christmas with a lights display at 2118 Pioneer Road lot 157 in Pepin Woods. The display is set up now through New Year’s and also includes a donation drive for food, gift cards, toys and other items this year.

“As we pass on the blessings of Christmas joy, we ask you to pass on the joy to those less fortunate in the community,” said Deb Cook.

Visitors also can tune to 88.1 on their radios to enjoy music along with the lights.
