Chase International, Incline Boy Scouts partner for annual food drive

Special to the Bonanza

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Chase International is pairing up with Boy Scout Troop 37 and Project MANA to help with Scouting for Food, the organizations’ fast-approaching annual food drive, happening Nov. 7.

This is the third year that Chase has partnered with local Boy Scouts to increase outreach and boost donations for regional families in need.

Door hangers will be left on area home doorknobs by the Boy Scouts on Saturday, Oct. 31, alerting residents to the planned food collection. The Scouts will then return to pick up requested food items the following Saturday, Nov. 7, between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

All donated food will be distributed to families throughout the North Tahoe/Truckee area by Project MANA at its weekly mobile food distribution.

Due to the limited size of the troop, door tags will be left at all homes located north of Lake Tahoe, east of Highway 431 and west of Country Club Drive. Residents living outside that area are encouraged to call 775-298-1856 in advance to request a special pickup.

Reminder calls are available upon request using the same phone number. If residents miss the pick-up time for the planned Scouting for Food campaign, items can be dropped off at Chase International’s Incline Village office at 917 Tahoe Blvd., Suite 100.

Food items needed include canned fruits, canned vegetables, canned tuna, nuts, peanut butter, dry pasta, soup, chili, instant oatmeal, rice, and dried beans (no glass containers and no expired items please).

“Chase International is honored to partner with Boy Scout Troop 37 again this year, to assist with this important program that helps feed local families that are struggling,? said Jenny Johnson, team broker for Chase’s Incline office. “The Scouting for Food program is right in line with Chase’s heart-centered real estate philosophy.”

For information on the food drive, call 775-831-7300.
