Jack S' Eagle Project

Hello everybody!

I'm Jack and I am having a FOOD DRIVE as my Eagle Scout Project since COVID-19 canceled my original project.

My Food Drive runs from now through May 30.

Why should you help?

  • Food banks really need help
  • Service hours for you
  • Visibility for Scouting
How can you help?

There are two ways that you can help out your community with this food drive.

The first way to help is for you to buy and donate food. The next time a family member goes shopping you can either go with them or ask them to buy extra food. Then you can drop it off at Saint John's on the following weekend days:

  • Saturday 23, from 2 to 5
  • Tuesday 26, from 4 to 7
  • Thursday 28, from 4 to 7
You can sign-up for a specific drop off time so we can all social distance.  SIGN UP FOR A DROP OFF TIME SLOT HERE

The second way to help is to become a neighborhood captain and gather as many donations as you can in your neighborhood. This is a little more involved, which means more service hours! 

  1. A neighborhood captain is a Scout who lives in a larger residential area with a lot of houses in close vicinity. 
  2. What they will do is distribute a flyer to their neighbors. You can also send this flyer via an email list or social media page/blog if your neighborhood has one of those.
  3. The flyer has spots to fill out your name and the dates you will collect the food from your neighbors. Find the flyer HERE
  4. After you collect the food you give it to me at St. John's (or you can drop it off yourself at the Food Cupboard, as long as you contact me to coordinate that).
  5. If you want, you can repeat this process more times.
  6. If you want to sign up as a neighborhood leader you can do so with this link.

As you can see some older scouts and Troop 98 Alumni already signed up! So get out of the house and help your community! Happy scouting!

Another way to help is to give money directly to the Food Cupboard via PayPal. You can GIVE MONEY HERE. Please be sure to note that your contribution is because of my project, like this:
