Tecumseh Council Boy Scouts helps the hungry

On March 18, 2017, the Scouts of Tecumseh Council, Springfield OH will be collecting food to help the hungry in our community. All food collected will be brought to food banks in and around Logan, Champaign, Clark, Greene, and Clinton counties.

Items needed include: canned meats/fish, fruit juice, soups, baby formula, jello, pudding mix, pasta, sauces, canned fruit, canned vegetables, baby cereal, powdered milk, peanut butter, hot or cold cereal. No outdated or opened items, please.

This food collection is part of Scouting For Food, an effort by Packs and Troops around our nation to fight hunger. It is the largest one day food drive. Scouts have placed Scouting for Food bags on your doorstep. Just fill the bag with your donation and place the bag back on your porch prior to 9am Saturday March 18. Scouts will be collecting bags and taking them to predetermined drop off locations.

In keeping with the values of Scouting, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Ventures, devote themselves to community service. Along with year round activities of crafts, outings, games, camping, and projects, Scouts seek to be of service to others.
