Tim Esch & Troop 4 Scouting for Food 2021
A fundraising campaign for Food Gatherers.
About This Campaign
Ann Arbor Troop 4 Boy Scouts have been participating in an annual food drive for many years as part of their commitment to the Scout Promise to “help other people at all times.” For the past 15 years they have averaged at least a literal ton of food, collected for the Tim Esch Scouting for Food Birthday Party in honor of Eagle Scout Tim Esch, who was top collector for several years before his tragic death in an auto accident at age 18 in 2005.
Due to the pandemic in 2020, the Scouts asked friends, neighbors and family to contribute monetary rather than food donations to Food Gatherers via this online site, with awesome record-breaking results! This year the food drive will be a combination of monetary contributions on this site, and actual food donations with the Scouts following the rules of masking/social distancing. The annual drive is an opportunity for the Scouts to learn about the needs of their community, the many different ways Food Gatherers works with partner organizations to distribute food, and the power of working together to accomplish great things. Thank you for supporting Scouting for Food, which will provide healthy food and hope to the many people who are still in deep need of help in these troubled and challenging times.
To make a gift now, you can click the DONATE button. Or, if you prefer to mail a check, please make it out to Food Gatherers and write "Troop 4/Tim Esch" in the memo field, and mail to P.O. Box 131037, Ann Arbor, MI 48113.
