Thomas was recognized for selling the most popcorn in his Pack. The patch is cool but he really wanted the real bow and arrow set that he also earned.
The next morning our Pack picked up food for the local food bank in the Whittier neighborhood. We filled up a pick-up truck load and dropped it off at the food bank. While unloading our truck there were over a dozen other pick-up trucks rolling in from other scouts - pretty amazing.
The annual Scouting for Food one-day collection provides the vast majority of the food bank's food for the entire YEAR.
