Throughout history, Scouting has assisted in helping in times of crisis. With the current virus concerns, our local food bank has been under significant strain. As Scouts, we put out a call for help from our community to assist people right here in northern Frederick who are in need. We are grateful and pleased that our “Cans for COVID” food drive for the Thurmont Food Bank was a huge success!
Many, many thanks to those who came by to drop off their very generous donations during these tough times. By acting locally, you have truly shown how a global community and society must function to step into a new era. Exercising special care to wear masks and keep our social distance, we collected a trailer full of food and several sizable monetary donations! Our Pack, Troops, and Crew would like to thank everyone who donated!
Special thanks to the Town of Thurmont and our Mayor John Kinnaird for helping spread the word about a project we threw together in just 1 week; to the Thurmont Police department for stopping by and helping set up a good “traffic flow”; To several local and state representatives for their generous donations; and to the woman who traveled all the way from Middletown to donate because she saw our post and was inspired! Northern Frederick county is truly a fantastic place to live because of the kindness of our communities, and we are proud to be your BSA units!
