On Saturday, January 31st, and again on Saturday, February 7th, our troop participated in the Scouting for Food program to help those in need in our community. On the first Saturday the scouts distributed collection bags to homes in the neighborhoods around Kern UMC. Instructions are printed on the bags explaining what to donate and when the donations will be collected. The following Saturday, the scouts collected the donated food and took it to the food pantry at Grace Lutheran Church where they sorted and boxed up the donations. This year we had 21 scouts participate and we colleted 520 donated food items.
