To benefit the Food Bank of El Dorado County, local Senior Girl Scout Lauren Nager has organized three separate food drives, two of which are slated for this weekend. Proceeds from the drives will benefit area children. The first drive is Saturday at the Safeway in El Dorado Hills at 2207 Francisco Dr. Sunday’s food drive is at the Cameron Park Food-4-Less, 3333 Coach Lane. The final food drive is Aug. 3 at Nugget Market in El Dorado Hills, 4500 Post St. Interested shoppers will be given a list of needed food items and can donate those purchased items on-site. Gift certificates and vouchers, which will go to the food bank, will also be available for purchase.
