Scouting For Food

12027264_10205164036716667_1978293665955722233_o

Helping our community, one can at a time.

Door Hangers should go out on Saturday 10/31 and collections will be on 11/7 to be donated to the Franklin Food Pantry.  Channel 5 will be doing commercials related to this scout wide event.

If you can’t get the hangers out tomorrow morning (10/31), that isn’t a problem. They just need to be out during the first part of this coming week, so people have time to respond and collect food for pickup on the 7th.

If you were not able to get door hangers at the troop meeting, please contact Mr. McGuire at  mike.mcg44@gmail.com.
