Last time I visited, I put some crafts from our scouts in exchange
for the others from guides and scouts all over the world,
from Australia, UK, US, El Salbador and more.

It is an unique box that we could feel much closer even we have
never met. Girlguiding or Scouting is the world organized and
we are all sisters!

Season for Food Drive (in English)

Happy halloween from Japan!

I am so excited to hear that Boy scouts of America hosts
annual Food Drive this season.
Food drive is not familiar among Japanese, but our troop
Girl Scouts 59th and Boy Scouts 19th Kawaguchi will
join together Scouting for Food early next year.

If your troop or family joined this service project, I would
like to hear how you enjoyed collecting foods from door to door,
or show in your blogs.

Thank you of your kindness

EN) Community Service

Community Service Project
We will donate used phone cards and train cards from people of
Kawaguchi to Yomiuri News in March. How they work for?
Every card is sold to collectors overseas which is designed
with beautiful picture of nature, world heritage site or even cartoon
charactors.

Other project is to donate 100 tooth brushes to a local church in SF in Feb.
You might know the most of Japanese hotels and inns set tooth brush and
tooth paste. I always bring back them (new) and keep them for donations.

Food Drive 2012

Food Drive
Senior + Ranger Scouts gathered on weekday evening, delivered
Non perishable foods to Curbs Fitness in Kawaguchi.
This project started in 2009, since Chi (Leader) saw a flyer
“Food Drive” by Boy Scouts of America in SF bay area.

Food Bank and Food Drive are not familar with Japanese people,
the first Food Bank was launched in Tokyo just a decade ago.

 Curbs Fitness and Second Harvest has been  conducting Food Drive
 for 5years and made the event success to members or even
local people. 

This project gave us to think of people in poverty situation,    amount of
waste food we throw away in our daily life. 

We collected; Rice, Canned food, Oils, Seasonings, Dried Seaweed,
Japanese tea, Noodles.
If you have any ideas or experience in Food Drive, we can share our
thoughts in our blog.
