Pack 216 conducts an annual two day Scouting for Food Drive in the Brookstone neighborhood. The food collected will benefit the Western Wake Crisis Ministry. We meet both days at the Brookstone pool/clubhouse.
Brown paper bags are distributed with instructions to the residents of the Brookstone neighborhood. This is a quick morning activity. It takes about 45 minutes.
A week later, picking up food from neighbor houses will be a longer activity needing more volunteers – collect bags from porches by car, sort donations and load it into pickup trucks for further transfer to the donation center. This can take up to 3 hours depending on the number of volunteers. Volunteers with pickup-trucks and mini-vans is very helpful to help transport the food to the donation site.
All are welcome to help scouts...siblings, parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents....BRING THEM ALL!
This is also one of three activities to earn the Summertime Pack Award. There is typically a great need over the summer, so this is a great way for scouts to give back to our local community by being "helpful". Letters for Boy Scout Volunteer Service Hours are also available.
