Eagle Project - Food Drive

Posted by rbruns on Nov 22 2014 - 7:12pm

Dalton Klepper is doing a Food Drive for the Douglas/Elbert County Task Force for his Eagle Scout Project.  The Task Force gave away almost half a million pounds of food to struggling families in 2013.  This will be a competition between the Patrols.  Please bring canned food (see attached sheet for food items) during the next 3 weeks of Tuesday Troop meetings.  I will collect and weigh to determine the Patrol winner.  Prize will be awarded to Patrol winner!

Collecting food-Collect from home, collect from family, friends, and neighbors.  (see attached flier for list of items to collect)

Safety- use buddy system when asking neighbors.

Community service opportunity- Keep track of the hours you spend collecting food,  Give a piece of paper with your name and hours on it to Dalton so it can be recorded.

There will be three weeks to bring in the food (December 2nd, Court of Honor is the last day to bring in food)

This is only one part of his project........stay tuned for more opportunities to help him and the community!
