As we head toward Thanksgiving Day, there are many opportunities for individuals in the community to give back, with thanks.

This Friday from 5-9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Nyssa Scouts will be at M&W collecting food items as part of Scouting for Food. All food collected will be donated to the Nyssa Community Food Pantry.

Items needed include hearty soups, Top Ramen noodles and canned vegetables.
