Scouting For food 2011

Do a good Turn daily... part of the Scout Oath... a Boy Scout promises to help other people at all times. By participating in a Scouting for Food program, scouts come a step closer to fulfilling those words. Across the country, in many councils and districts, thousands of troops and packs with millions of scouts involved collect tens of millions of pounds of food which is distributed to needy neighbors. If your troop or pack is not involved in a local program, or if there is not a program in place, this is a great opportunity for you to help improve your scouting program.

Here is our latest group of Scouts who participated in this valuable program.

This is how it works:

    * Bags are distributed to homes with instructions on pick-up date - usually the next weekend.
    * Full bags are collected.
    * Bags are delivered to food bank.

This year we distributed the bags on Saturday February 26 and picked up 70 Bags on Saturday March 5, 2011 adn delivered them to the Food Bank.

Our Scouting for Food co ordinator is Mrs. Lisa Colangelo.
