Pack 281's 23rd Annual Scouting For Food Event!!!

Posted on Mar 3 2018 - 8:33pm

Next Sunday March 11 from 9:45 Am to 3:00 PM, Pack 281 will be holding their 23rd Annual Scouting for Food event in Gold River, Scouts help those in need and this is the pack's biggest community effort event of the year!!! As we have in past years we will be knocking on doors in Gold River asking for donations of canned and boxed food items to be donated to the Cordova Food Locker on Coloma Road, which helps those in need and the homeless. The Cordova Food Locker truck will be at Gold River Discovery Center at 9:30 AM and we ask that the Scouts be at the school in their Class A uniform at 9:45 AM where they will be given their instructions and assignments. We need parents to assist by going with the Scouts, it is helpful if families can bring a wagon or bags to collect the donations in and some boxes to transfer the food in to your cars which will then be emptied into the bins in the truck. If you can't make it at 9:45 AM or stay the whole time come when you can, we need everyone's help!!! Either bring a lunch or plan on a meal break, the pack will provide light snacks so please  sign up your intent to help on the pack website with this important community service which is a council wide event. If you have any questions contact your den leader or the Pack's Scouting for Food chair's Elizabeth and Louis Ruygt at 635-5158.
