Scouting for Food pickup - 12 November at 8:00 am

Meet at Ponds Community Center
Good Morning scouts and parents,
On Saturday November 12 we will return to pick up the bags, now filled with food, to sort and deliver to our local collection center. Collected food is distributed to families throughout the communities of the National Capital Area Council.  Since the program launched in 1987, Scouts have collected millions of pounds of non-perishable food items to provide for families in need.
Please plan on arriving at the Ponds Community Center at 8:00 am. and plan on setting aside 2 - 3 hours.  For those interested in additional service hours, there is always a need for helpers to sort the food into larger bins to be delivered to the local food bank.
We need all hands on deck for this important event, and encourage each scout to sign up. Parents, we need more volunteers (preferably with SUVs or trucks) for bag pick up on November 12. On both days we will provide hot chocolate, coffee, and a sweet pastry to power us through the morning. This counts as service hours for rank advancement. 
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions or concerns. Yours in scouting,
