You do not see hunger, you feel it! The latest studies show more than 50 million Americans go hungry at some time every month. That is 1 in 6 of the U.S. population, including more than 1 in 5 children.
Scouting for Food is one of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Good Turns that aims to collect food for the local food banks who, in turn, distribute it to the needy. It’s an annual event that our local Geneva Scouts have participated in since the program’s beginning in 1988.
You can help. You can make a difference.
On Saturday, Nov. 2, local Geneva Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will distribute door hangers on doorknobs in assigned neighborhoods.
On the following Saturday, Nov. 9, Geneva Scouts will go back to the assigned neighborhoods to collect the food, sort, and place that same day to local food banks.
If you receive a Scouting for Food notice at your door, on Nov. 9, please put your non-perishable and canned food items in a bag and visibly place outside your door by 9:00 am so the Scouts can collect.
Food items may also be dropped off (by 11:00am) at the sorting destination: Salvation Army Church, 41 North Street, Geneva.
They're counting on your donation. Help the Scouts help the hungry by giving.
