Please give yourself all a Virtual Round of Appaluse as we have some updated numbers on Scouting For Food 2017 for our District:  4200 Lbs.     This does not include numbers from collections at Smart & Final.    Please also note this from the Marketing Director at Second Harvest:

As always it is an honor and a privilege to work with the Scouts. We appreciate the dedication of the organizations and the individuals who put so much time and effort into serving their community through the food drive for Second Harvest. 

Thousands of families will benefit with a brighter, happier holiday and hope for better tomorrows because of the food that the drive will provide to them. 
Everyone should all feel proud of their efforts. They have made a real difference in the lives of so many people today. 
With much gratitude, 
Let's continue this momentum as we gear up for the Laguna Niguel Holiday Parade on December 9.      Thank you to all Units who have been in touch as we gear up for this day--watch this space for further updates over the ensuing days and weeks.
