What is it?
Each year around Thanksgiving time, our Pathfinder club helps to collect non-perishable food items for local food banks, who use the food to make Thanksgiving baskets for needy families in the area.
All Pathfinders and Teens are encouraged to attend. Staff members or parents are needed to help lead a group as they walk the neighborhood to distribute bags, and also to help pick up bags the following week.
When and where?
Pathfinders distribute bags on one of the Sabbaths in late October or early November. We usually have a potluck in the Pathfinder room after second service, then assemble the bags and distribute them around the neighborhood. The following week, do a quick trip around the neighborhood to gather the bags (this time using cars).
