Thank You!!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to effort of this year's Scouting for Food Drive. Whether it was in planning, collecting, or giving food, every bit counts.

Thank you to our partner, the Food Group, who helps us in acquiring the door hangers every year. They are very supportive of our efforts in giving back to the community and we truly couldn't do this without their support.
