GLIDE, Ore. — Boy Scout Troop 112 in Glide, members of the Glide High School National Honor Society and members of the community have come together to pack holiday food boxes for more than 200 families this holiday season.

A representative from the Boy Scouts said this has been a tradition for their troop for the last 35 years.

The food will go to families in need in the Diamond Lake/Gilde area. Volunteers will deliver the food to families on Saturday.

Each box is filled with more than 100 pounds of perishable and non-perishable foods that will help families make the perfect holiday meal.

They said the food was paid for by five grants that they applied for over the year.

They received $1,000 from the Cow Creek Tribes and $5,000 each from Ford Family Foundation, the Ben Serafin Fund, Crane Creek Family Fund and C. Giles Hunt Charitable Trust.

A majority of the food was purchased and delivered by Sherm’s Thunderbird Market in Roseburg.
