Missoula Pathfinders, Adventurers Join Forces for Food Bank

November 03, 2016 | Shannon Gross

Every year in Missoula, the Mountain View Elementary School grounds are transformed into the Missoula Maze. 

This year, trains have taken over the maze. Parents and students, old and young, are learning about trains as they navigate through the maze. During the maze, one day is dedicated to help raise money and food for the Missoula Food Bank. 

This year, the Nemissoolatakoo Pathfinder Club and Missoula Adventurer Club went around spreading the word about the food drive and collecting donations. Pathfinders and Adventurers went in pairs door to door to help out the local food bank. Club members received several donations from people who would be unable to come to the maze.

One Pathfinder mentioned he enjoys going door to door because his parents never let him. An Adventurer came across an automatic sensor that would not stop making noise. Overall, the Pathfinders and Adventurers had fun and enjoyed being able to help their community. Every time we go out into the community, we build new memories and connections with the people of our town. We are looking forward to seeing more people participate in this community event this year.
