Scouting for Food Bags
October 25, 2017
Scouting For Food bags were distributed at Round Table two weeks ago. If your unit did not receive bags and needs them, please contact me (Phil Dennis) at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will make arrangements to get you bags before distribution on November 4th. I’m out of town this week, but can arrange to have bags available most evenings from my home if need be. Otherwise, we can work something out after October 31st.
The following link http://www.ncacsenecadistrict.org/program/scouting-for-food will take you to a map which shows where units have collected bags in the past. If your unit is looking to expand, please consider the areas that are not colored in on the map. Again, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Our goal this year is 30,000 pounds of food to collect for Manna Food Bank, Gaithersburg HELP, Germantown HELP, and Poolesville Food Bank. It is important that ALL units report their totals to our council. The link for this is http://www.ncacbsa.org/sff and more information will be provided on this after we start collecting food.
Food collections will be at the same locations as in years past:
Quince Orchard High School
15800 Quince Orchard Rd,
Gaithersburg, MD 20878
9 am – 1 pm
(Rt. 118 & Middlebrook, Germantown)
Drop-Off Times: 9 am – 1 pm
The times are a little earlier than first reported, but most units wrap up by 1 pm on collection day.
REMEMBER: BAGS ARE NOT TO BE PICKED UP BEFORE 9 AM!!!!
Our advertising campaign and the bags themselves state that we will pick them up AFTER 9 AM on Saturday November 11.
