Troop 416 will canvas neighborhhods for food on 2/13.  We will gather at 10AM with DONUTS to divide up and collect food door to door.  We have posted the food drive on two major neighborhood Facebook pages to alert homeowners to expect us.  We will collect from 10-1, then a smaller group will be needed to take the food collected to Emanuel Lutheran food bank downtown.  If you can stay for the afternoon delivery, please indicate in your registration comments. There is a Patrol competition with individual choices of Steam or Game Stop gift cards - patrols should counts items collected by each patrol.

All scouts are expected to participate in this important community service project!  It does count for scout ranks and school related service hours, but better yet, you get to serve other people who need your help!
