Scouts, Scouters, and Family Members contributed 42 hours hours of service on April 2nd and 9th for the annual Scouting For Food service project that provided 115 items and $100 donated to the Food Bank of the Heartland! Every patrol was helpful:
Ion Dragons Patrol 7.5 hours

Radioactive Llamas Patrol 6 hours
Wolverines Patrol 3 hours
Big Bang Patrol 1.5 hours
Eagles Patrol 1.5 hours
In addition, scouters and family members contributed 16.5 hours to make the service project successful.
All members of every patrol are needed for the annual Scouting For Food service project. Bring a wagon or ask a driver to help carry the food donations. For service projects, numbers count: Last week, eight scouts distributed 1000 door hangers in our neighborhood over 1.5 hours. This week, we can expect to collect hundreds of items for donation to the Food Bank for the Heartland. Meet at 9 am Saturday at the Dundee Presbyterian Church, which will also be the donation drop-off spot.
