Scouting for Food Pickup Day

6366805215_0a908b1264_zSaturday, November 21

Today we will go back to the neighborhoods where we hung door tags last week and collect the food donations. The plan is to start around 9am so we have plenty of time to get back to the church, where the Boy Scout Troop will load the food on to a trailer for delivery to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen.

We will need at least one volunteer from each den with a large vehicle to put the food in and deliver to the church.
