A Boy Scout promises "to help other people at all times." There is no better way to show our Scouting Spirit than by participating in the annual Scouting for Food drive! Now is the time to show our community the Scouting values of being loyal, helpful, kind and cheerful.  Scouting for Food is the leading service program for Boy Scouts of America and is a part of the national BSA program - Good Turn for America.  In partnership with the Houston Food Bank and "Souper Bowl of Caring," this council-wide service project began Saturday, January 24, 2015 as Troop 1324 distributed door hangers to announce the upcoming food drive. We will return on Saturday, January 31, 2015 to pick up and deliver donations to their local food banks and pantries.  Please meet at the Bullen residence, 8323 Heatherland, Spring, TX 77379-2724 by 9:00 AM to form teams and receive your map of your route.
