The Great Southwest Council of the Boy Scouts of America will collect food donations for Durango Food Bank starting Saturday.
Scouts will distribute empty food bags to homes. People that receive bags are asked to fill them with nonperishable food items and place them next to their front door to be picked up at 9 a.m. Feb. 17 and delivered to the food bank.
People are asked not to donate items in glass or breakable containers. Anyone who does not receive a food bag but wants to contribute, can donate items from 9 to 10 a.m. Feb. 17 in the parking lot at Needham Elementary School, 2425 West Third Ave.
