Dalton Food Pantry

FoodPantryOn Saturday, November 21st, Scouts have an opportunity earn service hours at the Dalton Food Pantry.  We’ll be joining area church youth and other Scouts in sorting food for the Pantry.  Thousands (maybe tens of thousands) of items need to be sorted, packed and stored in preparation for supplying families in need this holiday season.

Meet at the Dalton United Methodist Church from 9am-11:30am.  Street clothes are fine, though a Class B shirt would be awesome.  Check in with Mr. Davis when you arrive and before you leave so we have a record of the number of hours worked.

The pantry is at the rear of the church.  Bring a bag of food for the pantry if possible.

Due to the volume of cars it might be better to be dropped off in front of the church and walk to the open door at the right side of the church towards the rear of the property.

French Toast Breakfast is next week

We are significantly short of help for the French Toast Breakfast.  Please go to the sign up page on our website to sign up to bring baked goods and to help work.  We need all slots filled for both of those signups.

Many thanks to the few people who offered to donate food items for the breakfast.  Your donation is greatly appreciated.  We have now ordered all the remaining needed food items.  The donation page shows who has donated food, but no more sign ups for donations will be taken.
