Scouting For Food


A few of the children who participated from the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts.

The Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts collected bags of nonperishable food last week as part of the "Scouting for Food" program.

Scouts had distributed bags to homes in town earlier in the week. On Saturday they collected 50 filled bags and donated them to the Sidney Salvation Army Food Pantry.

The amount donated was considerably less than last year. The Scouts and the Salvation Army encourage anyone that did not receive a bag to donate nonperishable food items to the pantry before the holiday season. Last year the food bank assisted more than 120 local families.


Halloween Safety Lights


The Sidney Salvation Army will also be giving away Halloween Safety Lights, this Saturday, October 26, at the Salvation Army Store, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. One flash light per child, just in time for Trick or Treating. 

The child must be present to receive a flash light.  Limited flash lights available, on a first come first serve basis. This project is sponsored by the Sidney Salvation Army Bell Ringing.
