2019 Scouting For Food

Do a good turn daily…

We will conduct our annual “Scouting For Food” exercise on November 9th (Door Hanger Distribution) and November 16th (food Pickup). This is a Nation-wide BSA Scouting Service project

This is a highly rewarding opportunity for the scouts to participate in charitable work that makes a real impact on the greater community.  We need all scouts to be available to participate in both weekends. This is not a drop-off event – we need parent’s supervision and assistance. Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 9th at 9 AM – We will meet at Sycamore Park at 9 AM To distribute door hangers and begin canvassing.

Food collection to happen the following weekend on November 16th same time (9 am), same place ( Sycamore Park )
