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.

  • We are excited to announce that University City Partners is our official sponsor for this event. 

    • About University City Partners: The organization concentrates resources in these three key areas: planning and development, economic development and marketing and communications. As a catalyst, facilitator and thought leader, University City Partners promotes public/private partnerships to create and sustain the economic vitality of University City. " It’s about building relationships… and building a community"

  • Every Scout or Adult who participates in the Scouting Food Drive will receive our NEW patch. 


The Jamil Niner Food Pantry is in need of additional food donations.  We've already partnered with the following units and would love for your unit to participate. 

  • Pack 13 - University City United Methodist Church

  • Troop 13 - University City United Methodist Church

  • Crew 13 - University City United Methodist Church

  • Troop 148 - Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church

  • Crew 148 - Mallard Creek Presbyterian Church

  • Troop 321 - Muslim Community Center of Charlotte

  • Troop 49 - Back Creek Church

  • Pack 42 - Hopewell Presbyterian


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.
