Towpath District Scouting for Food 2019


UPDATED 2/24/2019

Greetings Towpath Scouters,


·        Dates – March 16, bag and/or sticker drop off. March 23 bag pickup and delivery to collection site.

OK Scouters,

The clock is ticking as we approach March 16! I hope you and your units are getting excited about Scouting for Food! Here are some key details for the upcoming weeks:

·        Units Staffing the Tops in Brighton (1900 Clinton Ave. South). Your information will be coming in a separate email.

·        BAG, DOOR TAGS, SIGNS, AND MAP PICK-UP – WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY MARCH 6 AND 7, 6:30 PM TO 8:30 PM AT THE PERINTON TOPS PARKING LOT, 6720 Pittsford Palmyra Rd, Fairport, NY 14450. Yes the store is closed but it is a convenient location. Look for my black Chevy pick-up with the cap parked under the lights toward the back of the parking lot NEAR THE POST OFFICE! I will have your bags, door tags, maps, SFF guides, and signs.

·        A NOTE ON BAGS. THIS YEAR THE COUNCIL HAS DECIDED TO MAKE BAGS OPTIONAL. THE FEELING IS OTHER FOOD DRIVES DO NOT LEAVE BAGS. MY PERSONAL FEELING IS THE BAGS REINFORCE THE MESSAGE OF FILLING A BAG OR 2 FOR SCOUTS TO PICK UP. THE DECISION ON BAGS WILL BE LEFT UP TO YOUR UNIT.

·        The signs are designed to be used multiple years with a space to enter the date of the food pick up. Please enter the dates with permanent marker or use some method to protect it from the elements. You can remove the marker with finger nail polish remover (acetone).

·        Attached are the following:

o   The new 2019 Scouting For Food leaders Guide. Please read through and let me know if you have any questions. I also attached the old Leaders Guide for those of you who wish to go “Old School”. Same info just in a different format. The new leaders guide also contains information on SFF contacts, reporting your Unit’s service hours and the SFF patch order Form.

o   Participation Information Card (2 per sheet) for reporting your information on the day your unit drops food at the collection site. This is for the collection site’s use. Your unit must still report your service hours on-line.

o   Scouting for Food Drivers Sign for your use during the drive.

·        Here is the list of participating units, their SFF area, bag drop off and number of bags and tags. Please let me know if there are any discrepancies or problems.

We have collected over 1200 boxes of food in the past. It is a fast paced and satisfying experience when your unit helps out! Please consider staying around a while when you drop off your bags to help sort and box food. Troop 208 is the host for the drop off site and always provides a vast selection of treats to keep our volunteers fueled! You are welcome to bring a treat or 2 to help! Our coordinator for the drop off is Thom Grimsley thomas.grimsley@gmail.com Please contact him to coordinate your help.

 

Thank you for your service to scouting!
