Weekend Updates

We Need LOTS of Scouts! Siblings too! We will be sorting out the food after collection.

Saturday morning (NOV 11) we will meet at 8:45 a.m. at GBE to begin collected donated goods from our neighbors in Greenbriar. null

WE NEED BOXES! Specific size: paper ream/ banker boxes

I have updated the website with an overall route map that includes all the dens. Now you can simply open your phone to check your routes!!



  • Safety First!
    • Parents should be taking the donations from the scouts and putting them into the cars.
    • Kids should not be leaving the sidewalks to go into the streets or crossover without supervision.
    • Stay with kids when they need to wait for a neighbor to go inside and gather collections.
    • Do NOT let them go inside of people’s homes. If they have an emergency, please have an adult from our group supervise them.
  • We need 1 Driver for each Den/ Group to drive the routes and act as a mobile collection point. Please see me at arrival if you would like to volunteer.
  • Please knock on doors! We have seen a dramatic increase in donations when we started knocking. Many people just simply forget.



We will have Hot Chocolate, Coffee and snacks for everyone when they return from their routes!
