Scouting for Food

*Notice to All Unit Leaders and Committee Chairs for distribution to each of your families in your unit*
These are especially difficult times for so many families.  The food distribution places are in the greatest need ever.  With careful protocols in place, the Seneca District will be holding our annual Scouting for Food at the 2 locations listed.  The following message is from Phil Dennis, Seneca District Scouting for Food Chair.

Seneca District will be having their annual Scouting For Food drive this year.  With Covid-19, things will be different.  We are encouraging units  to distribute fliers on November 7th and collect food on November 14th.  We will have two drop off locations:

  • Quince Orchard High School as usual from 9 am to 1 pm.
  • In Germantown we will be collecting food at Neelsville Presybterian Church, 20701 Frederick Rd., Germantown, MD 20876 …Also from 9am to 1pm.

When collecting food, remember that FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY in each vehicle!

We are encouraging units to use social media to disseminate information on food collections.  Having neighbors drop off food in boxes at Scout’s houses, and then have the Scouts deliver that food to the drop off location is preferred.  This reduces potential contact with others.

Here is a link for some sample fliers that you may find useful..

Thanks for all that you do.
