Do a “Good Turn for America!”

Good Turn for America is a national call to service by the Boy Scouts of America to address the issues of hunger, homelessness, and poor health in our nation.

In this effort, the Boy Scouts of America is partnering with some of the nation’s most respected service organizations, including The Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity. These organizations, and thousands of others, will work to provide opportunities for youth and volunteers to fight hunger and homelessness, and teach the habits of healthy living.

In West Tennessee the ongoing service project is food donation and collection for the needy for distribution by RIFA, the “Regional inter-faith Association of West Tennessee,” the most active institution in feeding the needy in West Tennessee. If you would like to help, RIFA is in need of the following items:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Cereal – 14 oz boxes
  • Canned peaches
  • Applesauce
  • Canned meats
  • Dry beans
  • Rice
  • Instant Dry milk
  • Cake mix and icing

If you can help, please drop off items at RIFA Food Bank on North Highland in Jackson, TN. RIFA is a 501C3 non-profit corporation dedicated to helping the needy in Jackson-Madison County, Tennessee since 1976.
