Northern Illinois Food Bank
December 13, 2009
Boy Scout Troop 80 in St. Charles, IL has been been honored to work at the NIFB as a community service project for the last few years. During the Christmas holidays the food bank receives many volunteers. However, during the months of Jan., Feb., and Mar.- historically they have been in dire need of volunteer help. This is when we stepped in. The NIFB has greatly impacted the 40+ boys and their families within our troop. How? 1.) the emotional high of knowing that in some small way they have helped someone in need, and
2.) the camaraderie of spending time with friends and fellow scouters while doing a "good turn". I cannot praise this institution enought for its good work and willingness to allow us to help others.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the ways it has transformed the 40+ boys in our troop. It has allowed them to see another side of society that they don't see every day- one in need. These wonderful boys learned how to give their time to help others in need- an invaluable life lesson.
