Scouting for Food


Local Boy Scouts in the Twin Valley District (Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin and Sunol) recently collected 32,027 pounds of food and 96 pallets of clothing donated through its Scouting for Food drive. The program saw Scouts leave flyers on doorknobs in their neighborhoods and come back the following week to pick up any food or clothing left on the doorsteps. Participating in the drive this fall were local Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops and Explorer Posts.

I left a bag out like I do every year, and no one picked it up :(

I've been heavily involved in scouting for almost 11 years and my council and district have never said a word about this wonderful program. We've done it as an individual unit project though.
