In 2013, we have partnered with 9News to “Scout for Food” to donate to the 9Cares Colorado Shares drive which provides food to over 1030 food banks throughout the Metro area. Bags and door hangers will be provided for Scouts to deliver to their neighborhoods beginning Saturday, November 9th with a request to fill with food and pick up on or by Saturday, November 16th, and delivered to the 9Cares drop off sites. Units may pick up Scouting for Food bags and 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 roster and then deliver to one of the 9Cares Colorado Shares collection sites on Saturday, November 16, 2013 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. You may register for this event online, just click on the Register button below.
