Scouting for Food 2014 -- November 1 and 8, 2014-- a big Success

 

Thank you, than you, for all the great work!


I want thank your scouts and leaders for all the great work on Scouting For Food.  For the third year in a row I’ve been astonished at how seriously the units in Chain Bridge District take Scouting For Food this year.  Over the past few years more and more units made a major effort to make Scouting For Food a priority!  This year, in particular, many units went “all out” on Scouting For Food.  This year we had the largest number of scouts and adults helping on record!  Please do let your scouts and leaders know that they have done a spectacular job!  Thank you.

In 2014 our scouts and volunteers collected 71,864 pounds of food overall.  52,00 pounds of food were delivered to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), 16,158 pounds were delivered to SHARE of McLean, 3,506 pounds were delivered to Food For Others (FFO) and there was 200 pounds of late pick ups delivered to various places.  We had 1,308 scouts assisting with the effort and 943 adult volunteers – the largest participation on record!!  Congratulations, Scouts!

This is a little less than we collected in 2013, but 2013 was a particularly good year some year-to-year fluctuations are typical.

Please do remember to post your Scouting For Food service hours in the  Journey to Excellence (JTE) web site. JTE asks for hours, which is different than what you reported to me. I do apologize about the fact that you have to report two different things to two different sites, but I can't do anything about that.
