All of the families of Canfield's Cub Scout Pack 25 will be working hard on their first annual food drive to benefit the Canfield Operation Blessing this Christmas season.

They will be collecting food three different ways to reach out to the community finishing up on Saturday Dec. 15 at Canfield United Methodist Church. Beginning the week of Nov. 27, they will be distributing paper bags to all their neighbors, families and friends and picking up the bags by Friday Dec. 14. They will be distributing flyers to the congregation of Canfield United Methodist Church on Sunday, Dec. 2 asking the congregation to bring a donation to the church services on Sunday Dec. 9. They will also distribute flyers at Hilltop Elementary School on Friday, Dec. 7 asking anyone who can help to bring their food donations to Canfield United Methodist Church on Saturday Dec. 15 between the hours of 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Anyone wishing to donate that did not receive a bag or flyer can simply bring their donation to the church on Dec. 15. Canfield United Methodist Church is located at 27 S. Broad St. (on The Green) in Canfield.

The following list contains the items that are given out each month by Operation Blessing. They place an order approximately three to four times a year and purchase these with the monetary donation they receive. Anyone interested in making a food donation can use this list as a guidee; however, any and all food items are greatly appreciated.
