Scouting for Food Nov 12th & 19th 2016

Over the years, Scouting for Food effort has truly been one of the most impressive undertakings by the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, Explorers and their leaders and parents. It has been a coordinated team effort that feeds the hungry.

November 12: Dens will gather to walk their pick-up area and deliver door tags to let residents know they will be returning the following week to make pick-ups and inform them how to package and leave donations for scouts to pick-up.

November 19: Scouts will revisit the neighborhoods they delivered tags to to collect food donations.

Donations will be delivered to a truck at the school, and then later taken to the local Food Bank. The dens will start collecting food after 9am, and have all food loaded on the truck at the school before 1pm. Additional details are available from the den leaders.
