Scouting for Food

Posted on Jan 8 2016 - 3:12pm

On Saturday, January 30th, we'll be participating in "Scouting for Food", this is a nation-wide service project event for Boy Scouts of America.  We will be distributing flyers at homes at various local neighborhoods, letting them know of the upcoming food drive.  The following weekend, the food donations will be picked up and donated to local food banks/pantries.  Last year, the Boy Scouts picked up 2,409 lbs of food thanks to our part in distributing the flyers.  Each scout that participates will receive a patch!

NOTE: This is a service project and can be counted towards rank requirements.
