How Scouts around the US are celebrating Thanksgiving this year:
Gilbert Boy Scouts to roast 160 turkeys
The Thanksgiving tradition for Troop 830, based out of the Maplewood Chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, began more than 30 years ago, Day said. The troop uses donations from the event to fund activities and buy gear.
Boy Scout gets a clean start on Thanksgiving
The members of Troop 10 are getting tired. They have been working hard for two hours transporting 261 kits filled with soap, laundry detergent, a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant and body lotion into vans and then into the South Brunswick Food Pantry at the Municipal Building.
Lebanon Boy Scouts present Thanksgiving donations to town
The Lebanon Boy Scout Pack 369 presented Selectman Jason Cole with three large boxes of donated food and cash for the Lebanon Town Hall Food Drive at their regular meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 19th.
Citizens, Boy Scouts, Salvation Army provide Thanksgiving turkeys
This year, Boy Scout Troops 155, 395, 83 and 374 intend to break that record. They are targeting a collection of 250 turkeys per troop, for a total of 1,000 holiday birds.

Seventy-five people assembled the food boxes on the Saturday morning before Thanksgiving at Boone’s home church.

Now in their sixth year, Boone and his team have an effective system in place.
