Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food

Sorry we missed you. Click here to notify us if your food donation has not been collected by 12:30pm on Nov. 11th   What is “Scouting for Food?” “Scouting for Food” is the nation’s largest single-day food drive. It began as a Scout’s service project in St. Louis in 1985 and was adopted by the National Organization in 1988. The goal is to help feed the hungry of our communities.   When does it take place? In Central Florida, it always happens on the first two Saturdays of November.  Saturday, November 4th is Distribution Day. Nearly 600,000 door hangers will be placed on doors throughout Central Florida. Saturday, November 11th is Collection Day. Starting at 9am, Scouts blanket our communities, collecting food donated by residents. Scouts then deliver the food to collection sites, where it is counted, packed and readied for delivery to food pantries. Want to participate, but don’t have food to give?  Donate online to purchase food for this year’s Scouting for Food drive!” Click Here   Why...

Hurricane Irma – Central Florida Council Disaster Recovery program

Hurricane Irma – Central Florida Council Disaster Recovery program

One of the largest natural disasters to strike in a quarter of a century descended on Florida over the course of 2 days earlier this month. As we all begin the clean up and rebuilding process, we take a moment to offer our prayers to everyone that was in Irma’s path and our thoughts are with all. In the wake of Hurricane Irma, nearly every person in our state has been affected. This includes the Central Florida Council, which has sustained damage to our camps. The Central Florida Council is calling on you to help us support Scouting in Central Florida and rebuild our camps; making them even better than before the storm! We are now accepting donations, of any denomination, to help with the effort. With our infrastructure damaged, our ability to deliver the unparalleled experiences our youth deserve is severly impacted. Please consider a donation to help our council rebuild, restore and comeback stronger than ever...

How to Help With Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort

Our thoughts and prayers are with the many families in and outside of Scouting that have been affected by the historic flooding in South Central Texas. The councils that have been significantly impacted includeSam Houston Area Council (Houston), Three Rivers Council (Beaumont), Bay Area Council (Galveston), andSouth Texas Council (Corpus Christi), as well as counties within the Alamo Area (San Antonio) and Capitol Area (Austin) councils. We are working with the leadership teams of these local councils to make sure their staffs and families are safe. We are also getting input on property damage at council offices and camps. As the storms continue in the area, we will continuously evaluate the needs of our people and facilities. Thank you to those who have asked for ways to assist in helping the Scouting family. Given the extent of response efforts required, we understand it is important for first responders to focus on the most pressing emergencies without a well-intended influx of volunteers. As such, the best way to help in...
