Together we can help fight hunger within our community and live the spirit of the scouting oath “…to help other people at all times”. Assigned neighborhoods are Jacobs Creek, Valley View Acres, Stafford Heights, Chads Ford and Glen Acres.
Saturday November 10 – we’ll meet at 9am in the parking lot at Brookside Park for door hanger distribution in the neighborhoods. Scouts will be given designated streets to deliver via the buddy system.
Saturday November 17 – we’ll meet at 9am in the parking lot at Brookside Park. Scouts will collect food bags in these neighborhoods then return to Brookside Park for drop off. Donated food items will be gathered for overall tally and delivered to the local food bank. In the past we’ve wrapped up distribution and pickup within two hours – please plan on joining fellow scouts as we make a difference performing another good turn for the community.
