Scouting For Food
Scouting for Food 2010 was held on October 23, 2010. St. Joe's once again played host to all of the Appleton, Neenah and Menasha troops for a one-stop drop off. Over 70 volunteers were on hand to help unload cars, sort food and direct traffic. Thanks to the gentlemen of BRAVO, Bill Krieg, Don Vyvyan, and Bill Losse who grilled over 500 brats and hot dogs we also served lunch to our hardworking scouts and families.
This was the third year that the scouts used St. Joe's as the one-stop drop off. As a result the boy scouts were able to see the impact of their efforts. Reflecting on this years' event Monica Clare, Director of Operations said, “We are the area's largest food program and are blessed with this 20,000 square foot facility, so we are able to accommodate a food drive this large. It is amazing to see 60 troops delivering thousands of pounds of food. The sea of totes filled with food bags for all area pantries was quite impressive!” Jennifer Allen, District Executive for the Bay-Lakes Council committed “There is a real sense of community among the troops dropping off all together. We've had a lot of positive feed back.” Scouting for Food is an annual event for the boy scouts and a very important food drive for St. Joe's and all area pantries.
