Scouting For Food Each year the Greenwich Council, Boy Scouts of America, lends a hand to those in need as part of the Scouting for Food Drive.  In partnership with Neighbor to Neighbor, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorers and Venturers collect food items from their neighbors.  The 2020 Scouting for Food Drive will take place on Saturday, March 21st when Scouts and volunteers will collect food donations and sort them at local firehouses and at Christ Church.  This is the largest service project that the entire Council works on and Neighbor to Neighbor truly needs our help in the month of March.  We have found that Scouts stationed at a grocery store is the most effective way to get food donations.

Base of Operations:
10AM to 1PM at Christ Church in the Parish House (meeting room) at 254 East Putnam Ave.

Drop Off Locations:
9AM-11:30AM at Old Greenwich Firehouse, Cos Cob Firehouse & Glenville Firehouse, Christ Church

Ways to Help:

• Distribute and collect bags in neighborhoods
• Staff drop off locations
• Man a grocery store and collect food or monetary donations that can be used to buy
   additional items
• Create a drop off bin at your school or charter organization
• Promote the online food drive through email and social media

Event Chair: Anyone else interested in helping out and joining First Selectman Fred Camillo?
Help is still needed running the event and on the day of the event.

Please RSVP that your Pack & Troop will be participating!
