Scouting for Food Denver Area Council Service Project
November 5-12, 2016
In 2016, we have partnered with 9News to “Scout for Food” to donate to the 9Cares Colorado Shares drive which provides food to over 100 food banks throughout the Metro area. Door hangers will be provided for Scouts to deliver to their neighborhoods beginning Saturday, November 5th with a request to fill a bag with food and pick up on the morning of Saturday, November 12th. Units may pick up Scouting for Food door hangers at the October roundtable meetings, University of Scouting, November roundtable meetings or at the Hamilton Scout Headquarters.
Units will need to total the amount of food items collected for their Scouting for Food report roster and then deliver to one of the 9Cares Colorado Shares collection sites on Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All Scouting units are encouraged to participate in this Council-wide community service initiative. Scouting for Food participation will inspire our young people and teach them the importance of community service. Service is a key ingredient in Citizenship! It will also reinforce Scouting's positive contribution to the general community.
Each unit should select a Scouting for Food Coordinator and begin planning.
