Our Pack is conducting our annual Scouting for Food Drive in the Brookstone subdivision on July 23 and July 30. The food we collect will benefit the Western Wake Crisis Ministry (www.wwcm.org). The work will be appreciated by many in need.
We need everyone to go to the Pack 216 Website and sign up for the drive so that we can get a count of how many volunteers we will have on each day. Please sign up prior to July 12 so we can get a headcount for planning purposes.
We will distribute bags on Saturday, July 23 at 9am – this should be a quick morning activity. It takes about 45 minutes.
We will pick up food on Saturday, July 30 at 9am – this will be a longer activity needing more volunteers – we need to bring the food back to the staging point by car, weigh it, and load it into pickup trucks for further transfer to the donation center. This takes about 2 to 3 hours.
We will meet at 8:45 both days at the Brookstone pool. The address is 6651 Lewey Drive, Cary, NC 27519.
Scouts should wear Class A Uniform both days and bring water to drink.
Please join us for this worthy cause-all are welcome to help-scouts, siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents....BRING THEM ALL! This will also be one of our three activities to earn the summertime pack award.
We are also looking for people with pickup trucks and mini vans to help transport the food to the donation site after we collect it and weight it at the meeting site- email me directly if you can help with this.
If you have questions, contact Mike Lopez at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your help! I hope you are having a great summer!
