Scouting for Food Online – Support Local Food Banks Today! April 15th through April 30th
FROM SAMOSET COUNCIL
During this unprecedented time, Scouting continues to serve youth and families across North Central Wisconsin. Youth are working closely with their family to complete Scouting projects at home. Virtual campouts are taking place, connecting local youth with youth across our great Nation. Scouting also remains committed to meeting community needs through service. With the growing economic hardship facing our communities, local food banks need Scouting for Food more than ever.
To ensure Scouts remain safe, the annual Scouting for Food project will be moving to an online cash donation format. 100% of the funds will remain in your community to support your local food bank. Instead of going door-to-door to collect food, Scouts will be spreading the word on this vital service project to help our local food banks. Just $1 dollar can buy 10 meals in Wisconsin!
Donate TODAY! By TEXTING “give food” to 844-615-4269 or visiting www.samoset.org/SFF
