Scouting for Food Drive
Over 30 Scouting units in the Aurora District are distributing bags this weekend ahead of the food drive. On March 19th Crew 999 will be assisting Mr. Mike Plicka and the pantry staff with food collection at First Lutheran Church, 7400 W. Lapham St., in West Allis.
Meet at First Lutheran at 9:00am. Street parking only. Enter the building at the main office door (east entry). Wear your Scouting uniform for inside work but also wear clothing suitable for outside work. The general plan is: Food will be unloaded outside in the alley, slid down a ramp into the basement where it will be weighed, sorted, and stored in the pantry. Extra food will be shared with other hunger organizations. The site is prepared to receive bags of food between 10:30am-12:00pm.
Adult family members and siblings of our crew members may also assist in this effort. Just please coordinate with Chris Perkins (414-810-9059) ahead of time. We ask all youth under 21 not accompanied by an adult to bring with them a signed parental permission slip.
