Boy Scouts in Troop 63, with the assistance from Troop 907, are joining Boy Scouts across the nation in their Annual “Scouting for Food” Drive. Each year, our Scouts, leaders, and parents collect non-perishable food and hygiene items for Woodbridge Human Services. The Food Drive consists of the Scouts distributing over 4,000 flyers to businesses and residents in Woodbridge on October 23rd. On October 30th, the Scouts retrace their assigned routes to collect donations left in bags or boxes by residents’ mailboxes. Between 9am-12pm, residents may also drop off donations to the collection center at the Center School Gym across from the Woodbridge Library. Scouts will be at the entrance to the collection center sorting donations and assisting with unloading vehicles. All sorted donations are given to Woodbridge Human Services to benefit any local residents in need.
Boy Scout Troop 63, founded in 1963, is one of the oldest Troops in the Connecticut Yankee Council. Our objective is to bring scouting to boys in the Woodbridge, Bethany, New Haven, Orange and surrounding communities. Known as the “outdoor troop”, we are active all year. Our outings include all types of camping, hiking, backpacking, skiing, canoe trips, white water rafting, as well as cultural events such as visits to historical parks, monuments, and much more. The Troop also actively participates in community service projects throughout the year.
Join the adventure. Join the fun and see what scouting is all about. This year, meetings are outside at Camp Whiting under the Alfredo Canepari pavilion at 1910 Litchfield Turnpike (Rt. 69) in Woodbridge on Monday nights from 7:00 – 8:30pm. All boys, ages 10 and up or who have completed 5th grade, along with their parents, are welcome to join.
