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. 

This food drive benefits Neighbor to Neighbor and will help feed hundreds of local families.  Please save the collection date Saturday, March 2, 2019 and prepare your unit to help-out, whether it be before, on, or after collection day!

As Scouting for Food is the ONLY Greenwich council-wide service project, our goal is to have every Troop and Pack participate!

Hon. Fred Camillo, State Representative is the honorary chair again this year. We still need additional volunteers to help make this a successful event.

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

Event Chair:
Anyone else interested in helping out and joining Hon. Fred Camillo? Help is still needed running the event and on the day of the event.  Contact Heather Brown Lowthert, heather.brown@scouting.org
