This Saturday is our Scouting for Food Door Hanger/Flyer Drop Off. Please bring your Scout(s) and enjoy doing a good deed for others in the Bay Area!
Pack 163 will distribute food drive donation flyers Saturday to houses in the Brookvale neighborhood. These flyers talk about the program and invite residents to put out canned food items the following Saturday. Then, next Saturday we will pick up any food left out and take it to a local Scouting distribution center.
Scouting for Food is the largest community service food drive in the Bay Area involving Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, and Explorers and is part of Good Turn for America.
Good Turn for America is a national call to service by the Boy Scouts of America that will help provide adequate food and shelter and to develop good health habits in our nation. To address these issues, we are collaborating with some of the most respected service organizations working in each of these areas. These lead organizations, and thousands of other local groups, will work to provide volunteer opportunities for youth and adults to fight hunger, provide shelter, and teach the habits of healthy living.
The more participants we have, the quicker and more efficient we’ll be.
- November 9 – 9 am – Noonish at Brookvale School (Flyer distribution with Boy Scout Troop 143)
- November 16 – 9 am – Noonish at Brookvale School (Food pickup with Boy Scout Troop 449)
