Followup: ‘Scouting for Food’ West Seattle success stories

Two success stories tonight from this weekend’s “Scouting for Food” collections, door-to-door, drop-off, and outside grocery stores. From Troop 282:

Regina Arceo-Schulz shared the photos, reporting the troop collected more than 600 pounds of food and wanted to say, “Thank you, West Seattle!”

And from Pack 793:

Committee chair Brian Christenson shared the photo and message: “Pack 793 would like to thank the West Seattle Families that contributed to this event. Our Pack alone collected 391 pounds of food that went to the West Seattle Food Bank on Saturday.”

REMEMBER … Through the end of next month, donations to local food banks count for more, because of the Feinstein Challenge. You can give online – WS Food Bank here, WC Food Bank here. Next door-to-door drive will be Stamp Out Hunger, same day as West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day as usual, second Saturday in May (this year, May 10th) – leave a bag of non-perishable food by your door/mailbox and your letter carrier will handle it, that day only.

    It’s amazing to see the generosity of our community. We were a part of Pack 282’s Scouting for Food day, and brought in a grand total of 1389#, including many donations from Morgan Junction Thriftway.

    Thank you to every one who donated and supported this wonderful West Seattle effort. And keep it on the calendar, as it happens annually.
