Spring Scouting for Food

The Mobile Area Council answered the call from Feeding the Gulf Coast to help local families in need during this time. Scouts were happy to help. 

“We want to help out as many people as we can,” Scout Peter said. “Yes, we understand that we are not going to be able to help satisfy everybody but as many people as we can. That’s what we would like to get.”

They give their thanks to the Boy Scouts of America for teaching them valuable lessons and shaping them into an active member of the community.

“We learn that giving to others can really make a big impact, even in a really small way,” Evelyn said.
