“Stuff the Turkey” – the 2016 Silver Comet District “Scouting for Food” project.

Posted on Sep 17 2016 - 4:52pm

“Stuff the Turkey” – This will be the theme for our 2016 Silver Comet District “Scouting for Food” project. We will be partnering with The Center for Family Resources (CFR) and their annual “Thanks for Giving” event. Our District challenge is to donate 1400 boxes of dressing to be used in preparing Thanksgiving Dinner for 1400 qualified Cobb County families. Our efforts will coincide with our annual Turkey Shoot on November 5 at Jim Miller Park. CFR representatives will be set up to receive boxes of dressing during the Turkey Shoot.

Another opportunity to participate in our “Early Kick-Off” will be to bring boxes of dressing to our Round Table on October 13.

Please check the Center for Family Resources website for other volunteer opportunities in their “Thanks for Giving” event including volunteer participation on the Food distribution days.

Also visit 2016 Atlanta Area Council Scouting for Food for resources and Patches.

While our cub scouts are aiming for their targets at the Turkey Shoot, help our district to hit our target of 1400 boxes of dressing as we “Stuff the Turkey”.
