We are pleased to announce our group’s Annual Christmas Food Drive will begin shortly. We are asking our members to collect food and bring them to their meetings starting the week of November 20th, until the meetings that fall on the week of December 11th. The food collected during the meetings will be collected and added to the food collected by our Sponsor, St. Helen's Church during their food drive.
As an added incentive, points will be awarded to each section for the food that they collect based on the point system listed below. To keep this friendly competition fair, the points accumulated by a respective section are then divided by the number of registered youth members in that section. The section that accumulates the highest points/member average will be rewarded with a Pizza Party at a future meeting.
Higher points are given to items that are in more demand by food banks. The point system is as follows:
10 points - Baby Food, Powdered/Condensed Milk, Tuna/Canned Meat, Peanut Butter
5 points - Pasta, Canned Soup, Canned Fruit and Vegetables
1 point - Everything Else
Note: Any unmarked cans, expired items or opened bags will not be included in the score.
We thank you in advance for your support and generosity during this time and for helping a good cause!!
Welcome! We are a Scout group in the Bloor & Dufferin area of Toronto.
