Scouting For Food
2012
“On my honor I will do my best...”

On November 17th

Sponsor Support From
~Firefighters On Your Side~





These are the results of this year’s Scouting For Food drive.
Thank You for all you did.  There were over 11,000 Scouts and their leaders collecting food on the 17th.
These Scouts and their many supporters have worked for the last six months organizing this annual “Good Turn”. We collected the food for five Bay Area Food Banks.  The Food Banks then distribute this food to families in the form of Holiday Food Baskets.

Ground Transportation for the collection day provided by:
Con-way Freight and CC/S Food Bank

Three Simple Things

This is Good!
This will help us collect MORE food on the 15th!

  Have your Scouts do these "Three Simple Things":

1. Knock on every door that received a door hanger and did not leave a donation. Maybe they forgot to put out their food or would give if asked. They did this in East Contra Costa Co…and they collected more food than ever!

 2. Tell your family and friends if they didn't get a door hanger they can still help by dropping off their food at any SFF Collection Site on Nov 15th. 

3. Ask your Charter Organization to collect food and you deliver it on the 15th. 

History has taught us that most people will donate if asked by a Scout in his uniform. We also know that people have busy schedules and may want to help but forget to put out their food. We can remind them with a Scout friendly knock on the door.

We know that over 1.75 million people live in our Council and that approximately 6,000 Scouts and their leaders participated in SFF last year. This means that most people did not get a Door Hanger and many of them would be willing to donate if the knew where to bring the food.

Tell your family and friends if they didn't get a door hanger they can still help by dropping off their food at any SFF Collection Site on Nov 15th. 

Every Scout Unit has a Charter Organization. Most people in that organization are willing to help. Ask your Charter Organization to collect food and you deliver it on the 15th. 

If we do these "Three Simple Things" we WILL increase the food we collect for the needy in our communities and can truly say we try "TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE AT ALL TIMES..."

A copy of  a "Three Simple Things" Flyer and Collection Site list  for you to distribute can be downloaded here: http://tinyurl.com/kusycxv
