Food Drive for the UNC Charlotte Jamil Niner Student Pantry

September 19, 2020

Is your unit interested in helping with the 1st Annual Scouting Food Drive for the UNC Charlotte Jamil Niner Student Pantry?

We would love for your unit to participate and join several of our units that have already committed to helping.

How it works: Each unit (Pack, Troop, and/or Crew) will promote the Food Drive internally within their unit, collect the donated food, and deliver all collected food to the Jamil Niner Food Pantry on Saturday, Sept 19 between 10am and Noon.

All food donations, by unit, will be weighed and recorded when dropped off at the food pantry. 

1224 John Kirk Dr, Charlotte, NC 28262

*** NOTE: This is NOT the same model as Scouting for Food. No neighborhood bag drop-off. ***

How do I sign-up my unit? Can I participate as an individual or as a family?

Send an email to David McKenzie davidcmckenzie@gmail.com to sign-up.

Want to participate as an individual or as a family? No problem. Just email me your name and contact info.
