|Colonial District Scouts participating in the "Scouting for Food" drive in November 1998 delivered the food they gathered to many community foodbanks. The following letter from the director of one foodbank to the district S4F coordinator emphasizes the importance of this "good turn."|
KOINONIA FOUNDATION INCORPORATED
"Caring and Sharing in the Local Community"
November 16, 1998
Please accept the sincere gratitude of everyone at the Koinonia Foundation for the outstanding job the Scouts did on Saturday, November 14th.
Our shelves are full and we now know we can continue to feed the needy for another year.
The Scouts and their leaders are to be commended and we hope you will pass on to them our admiration and respect.
Our organization is one of many who benefited from the hard work of so many in the Scouting family, and it is no small exaggeration to say the Scouts are feeding thousands of people for the next year.
God bless all of you, and I assume we will meet again the second Saturday in November 1999.
