Saturday October 15th in between 10 am and 1 pm we will be collecting bags full of food to take down to WARM from neighborhoods around Center Green Park.

We would love to have as many scouts as possible help out with this service project. Attached is a flyer.

Note that we will also need vehicles with storage capacity to transport the food from our pickup area to the WARM facility. So if any of you know of families in your Den with large SUVs or pickup trucks please let them know that their assistance is appreciated.
