Look for a collection bin in November for donations for Georgia Mountain Food Bank. This organization partners with 12 Forsyth County organizations to fight hunger. Their current greatest needs are:
- Canned fruit (low sugar)
- Peanut Butter
- Jelly (low sugar)
- Canned meals (i.e. Chef Boyardee)
- Whole grain pasta
- Canned spaghetti sauce
- Cereal (low sugar)
- Canned vegetables (low sodium)
We will be collecting through November. Make sure to pick up a couple extra items when you go shopping! Call Kim Lepp at 404-401-6080 with questions or to www.gamountainfoodbank.org for more info.
As a part of scouting, a scout must create an Eagle Project. This Eagle Project will better the community. I chose to create my Eagle Project at the church that sponsors my troop. The church that gives my troop a place to host our meetings. Every Monday when I walk down to the troop meetings, I pass a fire pit surrounded with four older benches. Then one day I was passing the fire pit area thinking about an Eagle Project idea, and it just hit me. Fixing the benches would be a perfect project.
