Scouting for Food - Pickup

Saturday, November 9th, 2019 - 9am at McGrath Field

Each year, Scouts all across America have what is the worlds largest single-day food drive called "Scouting for Food"!  The food collected on this drive will provide food for the needy in our community throughout the year through the Second Harvest Food Bank.  This is your chance to be part of something REALLY BIG that is "HELPING OTHER PEOPLE" as we pledge in our Scout Oath.

There are two parts of the food drive:  

1. Door Hanger Drop-off - We Already Did This!

2. Food Pickup (this Saturday) - Troop & Pack families drive around, looking for bags, picking them up. We put them all in the flat-bed trailer.  Then, those who want can go to the distribution site to deliver the goods!

Who:          Boy Scout Families
Date & Time:  Saturday, November 9th, at 9am Sharp for group meeting
Location:     McGrath Field (info) - 1975 Stewart Road(map)- DO NOT MEET AT SCOUTPOST!
Attire:       Scouts wear Class-A Uniforms 
              Wear walking shoes.
Notes:        We'll meet at McGrath, assign areas, 
              and send families out with maps & water bottles.
              At the end, if desired, go to the drop-off station 
              nearby to help unload and see!!!

If we have enough help, we can do it in about 1 1/2 hours!
