Scouting for Food Part II – Bring your Empty Backpack

Scoutting for Food helps the community by providing for those less fortunate

Quick Details

Where St. Mark Meothdist Church
When Saturday March 10th @ 8:30 A.M. 
 What Scouting for Food – Part 2 and March Day Hike

This Saturday, March 10th, please meet at St. Mark Church at 8:30 a.m. in full uniform for the 2nd phase of the Scouting for Food project.  We will divide into teams and go back to the same areas that we delivered the bags to pick up the donated food items, and return with these items to the church.

Now, this is where a new twist comes in for this event.  This year Troop 26 will be backpacking the donated food from the church to the Food Bank on Hollister Avenue.  The hike is less than one mile.

There are a few reasons for this hike:

1. This will count as our March day hike (remember those participation requirements)

2.  It will be a good way to promote the event to the community

3.  It is a way to increase awareness of how fortunate we are.  There are many people throughout this country and the world who have to walk many miles each day just for the basics like food and clean water.

We need ALL scouts to participate.  So please bring your backpack this Saturday, March 10th to St. Mark Church at 8:30 a.m. Please remember full uniform.  We will need adult drivers to assist with the food pick-up. The more the better.  We should be finished around noon.

If you want school community service hours please remember to bring your school’s required form to Mr. Pinner for his signature

Let’s show our community that Troop 26 is committed to “Helping other people at all times”

If you have any questions regarding this event please contact Mr. Pinner or Mr. Shaw.
