This is the second day of a two-part service project to benefit local area food banks.  Scouting for Food is the largest door-to-door food collection effort in the Shenandoah Valley and benefits many assistance agencies across the Frederick County.  This food drive benefits thousands of needy children & adults in our own community. 

This year Troop 46 and Pack 46 donated 860 pounds of food collected in Virginia to the Welltown United Methodist Church Food Pantry.  Troop 46 also donated 500 pounds of food collected in West Virginia to Community Cupboard Food Pantry. The Troop’s primary collection area includes Stephenson Road, Jordan Springs Road, and Opequon Estates subdivision in Virginia; and Musselman Square, Elizabeth Station, Sylvan Grove, and True Apple Way (& side streets) subdivisions in West Virginia. The Pack’s primary collection area includes Snowden Bridge subdivision in Virginia. 

Thanks for everyone’s help! Thanks to the parents that helped.
