The previously mentioned Boy Scouts of America, Grayback District 28’s “Scouting for Food” drive that took place earlier this month brought in 16,053 pounds of food.

Over 250 scouts and over 150 Scouters/parents participated in the annual drive, which took place October 9 at 14 grocery stores in Highland, Redlands, Yucaipa, Calimesa, Beaumont and Banning.

The food was donated to four local assistance agencies: Family Service Association of Redlands, the Redlands Salvation Army, Yucaipa Family Assistance and H.E.L.P, Inc.
