Scouting For Food

Posted on Feb 10 2019 - 8:35am

It is time for Scouting For Food, which is the an annual day of Scouting Service; the largest food collection event in the nation.

We will deliver bags to our assigned area on Saturday February 16, asking homeowners to have some canned food ready for the following Saturday.  Then we will return to the homes on Saturday February 23 to pick up the food donations.

We need scouts, as well as adults to drive.  The more people helping, the easier it will be!  If you can spare a few hours on one or both weekends, please help.

We need to know how many people are coming, so please sign up online for February 16 and February 23.

We will meet at the troop trailers, in the FUMC parking lot, on both Saturdays, at 9am

Wear your Class A uniform, as you are representing Scouting BSA.  Please wear warm clothes underneath, as it may be cold, and a jacket over the scout shirt makes it hard to tell you’re a scout.

Each group will be given a small area and map, and if we have enough help, it should only take a few hours. 

Make sure you sign in and out, as this is eligible for Service Hours.
