Nyssa Scouts were at M&W Markets in Nyssa last weekend collecting food for the Nyssa Community Food Pantry.

The community responded well with 351 pounds of food and $399 donated! Thank you to the Scouts, leaders and parent volunteers for holding this food drive.

Pantry Manager Kathy Oliver stated, “COVID has really changed the food distribution process. We are so thankful for our local donors who donate the things families need. Thank you, Nyssa!”

• Adrian Lions are holding their 3rd annual fundraiser drawing with a $300 food voucher the grand prize. The Lions have partnered with M&W Markets to offer the $300 voucher, a $200 voucher and the club has purchased a $100 gas card as the third prize.

Tickets can be purchased at Owyhee Corner Store, Don’s Lumber and the Mirage in Adrian. Lions Club members will be at M&W in Nyssa on Saturdays until Dec. 18 when the drawing will be held. Support the Adrian Lions by purchasing tickets.
