Now is the Time to “Do a Good Turn”!
As you already know, the need for food is greatly needed right now and we have found many of the food banks and pantries we partner with really need our help. Since we will not be going out in the community door to door this spring, (we will in fall) we are asking that every unit help raise the needed funds for the food banks and pantries instead. This is a grassroots effort, where Cub Scout Packs and Scouts BSA Troops will be creating and sharing flyers with their local Food Bank and Pantry’s information. This will direct people on where to donate locally. This campaign is in addition to the traditional Scouting for Food campaign that has been rescheduled to the fall of 2020 – watch for details. 100% of these dollars will be going directly to the local food banks, based on the food banks information that your unit shares.
This year marks the 32nd Annual Scouting for Food Drive and while we have made changes to help the food banks and pantries now, we plan to still do our traditional Scouting for Food drive in October. Now is the time to join Boy Scouts of America, as they deliver on Scouting’s “Good Turn” motto by participating in the annual campaign in Eastern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
