The Circle Ten Council of Boy Scouts will be out in force this month collecting food, most of which will be given to the White Rock Center for Hope on Garland Road. There will be plenty of opportunities to help the Scouts this month, primarily when thousands of yellow plastic bags are distributed door-to-door by Scouts Saturday, Feb. 12. The Scouts will begin collecting the bags, hopefully filled with canned and boxed foods (non-perishable) beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 19. If you don’t receive a bag or want to help in another way, contact Wendy Kurten at 214-902-6794.
