At 8:30 am sharp, Andrew and I heading to Holy Name of Jesus, Church in Redlands to help sift and sort through 1000’s of donated food from throughout the Inland Empire, his Redlands Troop 11 help take the food that was donated, divide up the food and weigh the food, then get it off to local charities to help out hundres of families in the area.
During the 2008 Scouting for Food drive, Scouts collected 2.2 million cans of food .
Scouting for Food is the BSA’s largest one-day food drive, raising 15 percent of area food pantries’ yearly supply and feeding the hungry in the community for three months.
It felt great doing something that is needed by millions of families right now, going through tough times!
Andrew and I, really understood the importance of what we where doing, even if he had to get up early Saturday morning.
Great , Job Scouts!
Carlos Samaniego, Troop 11
P.S. After spending day helping out with Scouting for Food, Andrew went and spent 3 hours, at the San Bernardino County Museum and earn his Astronomy Merit Badge. Congrats Son!
