Scouting For Food 2011
Once again the Cubs, Scouts and Venturers of the Benjamin Tallmadge District joined forces to participate in the Annual Scouting For Food service project and
collected and distributed nearly TEN TONS OF FOOD for the dwindling and empty pantries throughout the District. Well over one hundred volunteers from the
various Packs, Troops and Venture units were on hand on Saturday morning, March 19th at the Coram Fire House to collect, sort and pack the food that had been
gathered by the local units. A number of parents commented on how all of the children, ranging from seven year old Tigers to High School Seniors, worked so
well together to make this a very rewarding service project for the Community. All of the Pantries expressed their thanks and appreciation to the scouts for their
time and effort and thanked Gerri Alfano, Donna Dunn, Kathy Westrich and Kathy Eyerman and all of the Committee members and adult volunteers that made
it an especially successful campaign this year. A special THANKS is also extended to the Coram Fire Department for hosting this event at their Fire House.
