Happy Mid-Summer everyone! In just a few weeks, we have our first big service project of the scouting year–assisting with the Bread of Angels Ministry in serving meals to the needy.
Due to the high interest of this event, we are splitting it between two Saturdays with two shifts (8 scouts, 3 parents) each in August. The first will be Saturday August 16 and the second will be August 23.
Those of you who participated in this event last year, you might recall the overwhelming emotions and joy in the faces of those we served. For those of you have not yet had the opportunity to assist, you will find this both a memorable and rewarding experience. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Pack to give back to our community, support the Church’s mission and present a wonderful life lesson (or two!) to our young boys. This even qualifies for some scout activities (for example, Tigers e11, Wolf 11d, Bear 1b or 3f, Webelos 8e)
We will need two shifts of helpers for the event. First shift will be from 7am to 9:30am and the second shift will be from 9:30-12:00pm. All the meals are prepared by the Bread of Angels staff in the Church Hall at St. Angela Merici. The scouts will be taking orders and serving lunch only to the guests. Order taking will be easy; the guests will have a paper menu and they will select their choices by marking boxes and handing the paper/menu back to the scouts who will present them to the kitchen. The boys can serve and interact with the guests during the day. We can also use the help of 3 parents to help in the kitchen during their son’s shift. (The boys will not be able to help in the kitchen due to their young age).
There are also many needy children at the event and our boys will help in passing out games to the kids.
The uniform for this event will be the Class B T-shirts; keep the Class A shirts at home to keep them clean! Parents, you might want to bring a kitchen apron if you have one.
