Dear Pack 811 Families:
Our Pack’s biggest service project is coming up in the next few weeks. Our Cub Scouts will be assisting the ACT Office with their annual food drive. This is a great event to show our scouts that their service can make a big impact to those who are less fortunate.
Sunday, October 16, while our scouts are having fun during the pack meeting, we will ask parents to help staple fliers to grocery bags. Please bring a stapler with you (we will provide the staples). The more parents stapling, the faster we will get the job done. Last year, we had so many helping hands that we finished stapling fliers before the scouts got done with their gathering game.
Saturday, October 22, and Sunday, October 23, our scouts will distribute grocery bags after all the Eucharists. We need a minimum of 6 scouts for each Eucharist to cover all the Church exits. You do not have to attend the particular Eucharist you signed up for. All you need to do is show up before the Eucharist ends and spend 15 minutes or so distributing grocery bags. Scouts must wear their class A uniform.
Saturday, October 29, and Sunday, October 30, our scouts will assist with the collection of grocery-filled bags from parishioners before each Eucharist. We will have tables at the plaza where parishioners can drop off their food donations. The scouts will bring the food they have collected to the Parish Hall for immediate sorting. We need the help of at least 10 scouts (6 to cover each Church entrance and 4 to cover the tables) and their families for each shift. Sorting of the food is a huge task and the more help we have, the easier the job will be. If you have a wagon, please bring it with you. The boys enjoy loading them to carry the food. Scouts must wear their class A uniform.
Please click on the link below to sign up for your shifts. If you can spare the time, please sign up for more than one shift for each weekend. It is greatly appreciated.
The ACT Office really counts on the help of our cub scouts during their Annual Food Drive. Let us show them that Pack 811 is not only about fun but also about serving the community.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in scouting,
Naila and Matt Currie
