Scouts food pickup: 11,000 pounds & counting
by Bend Weekly News Sources

With Sisters Boy Scouts yet to complete their "Scouting for Food" good turn, it appears the region's generosity will surpass last year.

Scout executive Jared Vanderhoff says, "All towns have reported and our total comes to 11,000 pounds of food donated so far, but we will end up ahead of that because Sisters Scouts are doing a food drive with their sponsoring organization later this month. They expect to do about 1,000 pounds.

"I think it is safe to say that when all is said and done we will have collected 12,000 lbs. I sure wish it was more. We'll work on that for next year."

On Saturday, November 18, area Boy Scouts collected filled grocery bags from front porches throughout the region. Donated food was shipped to social-service agencies and food banks in each area for distribution this holiday season to needy families.

Nationally, over four million Scouts and adult volunteers are involved in the "Scouting for Food" effort. More information is available by calling the Scout office at 382.4647 or visiting www.craterlakecouncil.org/fremont.

Who are Central Oregon's Boy Scouts?
