To kick off the scavenger hunt, North Metro Fire will host three stations in the fire district on Sunday, October 4, from 1-4 p.m. where residents can complete the first three missions of the scavenger hunt. Visit all three stations on Sunday, and you'll receive a special prize!

Items requested by the food banks are canned soup, peanut butter and jelly, and cereal.
