Scouting for Food: Nov 2 & Nov 9
October 30, 2019
It’s Scouting for Food time again! Please be sure your Troop or Pack participates in this crucial event, which provides food for hundreds of our neighbors in the Upper Montgomery County area. Once again this year we will be distributing stickers rather than plastic bags. This is because the plastic bags were difficult to handle and many of them would be swept away by the wind and end up stuck in a tree or a storm drain. People who want to make a contribution will place food into a bag they provide and leave that near their front door. Stickers are still available for pickup. If your unit has not participated in the past, please consider this year as a starting point. Sticker drop off will be Saturday, November 2, and food collection will be Saturday, November 9.
This year we are asking units to consider a Scouting For Food collection at their charter organization. This has proven successful in other areas. We do have about 2000 bags we can contribute to units doing collections at their charter organizations. These collections can be made ANY TIME DURING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER! We will make arrangements to pick up the collected food from these extra collections and get them delivered to various local food banks.
Collected food can be brought to the following locations between 10 am and 1 pm:
Quince Orchard High School
15800 Quince Orchard Rd.
Gaithersburg, MD 20878
19718 Germantown Rd
Germantown MD 20874
