Our Annual Stittsville Scouts and Stittsville Guides Holiday Food Drive is almost here! Twenty-three Guide and Scout sections will be going door-to-door in Stittsville, collecting food and donations for The Stittsville Food Bank.

Date:  November 25 – 28, 2013
Time:  7pm – 9pm
Location Assignments:   Use the Online Map Selection Tool to select your section’s area

In addition to this Food Drive, we also conduct a Spring Food Drive in March of each year. Both of these provide great opportunities for us to give back to our community, while focusing on the Community Service aspects of Guiding and Scouting.  All sections and units are encouraged to participate.

You may pick up money containers and LCBO boxes at 13 Crantham Crescent, Stittsville on the night of your food drive, anytime after 5:00 pm.  The groups that meet on Monday night may also stop by after 5:00 on Sunday Nov 24, if that is more convenient.

Food and cash donations are to be dropped off, in LCBO boxes, back at 13 Crantham Cres each night, immediately following your Food Drive.  Please bring enough leaders to help unload and consolidate the food.

Food will be sorted and delivered to the Food Bank on Thursday Dec 5.  The sorting will be hosted by Delta Troop, with help from other Scout and Guide groups.

LCBO Boxes
If you choose to provide your own boxes, please make sure they are LCBO boxes. These boxes are ideal for collecting food because they very strong, easy to stack and easy to lift. Please do not deliver food in bags.

 Please participate and  make a difference in someones life!
