22. I'm planning our Cub Scout Food Drive- My goal this year is 9000 cans
Last year we collected 5721 cans with about 20 boys (my boys are 10 and 7). Some of the parents complained about my planning so much I almost was in tears. But when we got the job done, the lady that runs the food pantry was so thrilled. She said that had never happened in the history of the food bank.

I guess I got so caught up in getting the coordination done that I didn't explain to my 7 year old what the food pantry did. One day he asked me what "less fortunate" meant. The only way I could explain it was to relate it to the food pantry and told him that when people didn't have money for food they could go there and get it without paying. He got real quiet and then got a really big smile on his face and then said "that's awesome!"
