Community Service

Image result for community storehouse logo
Pack 1910 has partnered with Community Storehouse ("CS") to help make the Christmas meals a little better and the shopping less of a burden for families in need.  As such, we are taking collections for holiday food baskets for our last community service project of 2015. Donations will be collected at or before our DECEMBER 8 PACK MEETING and taken the next day to CS.

We would like to encourage our Scouts to step it up a notch at home and do whatever extra chores around the house that they can between now and the December Pack meeting.  This will enable them to earn a little extra spending money which they could then use to purchase items to donate themselves and really take ownership of this service project.  It takes a village and everyone doing their part during the holidays to make it all work.  

Another idea that others have done is they have taken their wagon, Scout in uniform and had printed list in hand to show neighbors and TELL THEM what you are are seeking -- I would bet that most (but not all) will likely clear out their pantry for this cause.  People love the opportunity not only to help Cub Scouts but also their fellow man.  

The needed items for the Community Store are:

  • Cereal
  • Cake mix & frosting 
  • Cookie or muffin mixes 
  • Stove Top Stuffing 
  • Instant Potatoes 
  • Hamburger Helper or Tuna Helper 
  • Soup 
  • Canned Vegetables 
  • Cans of Fruit 
  • Gravy Mix 
  • Broth 
  • Canned Sweet Potatoes 
  • Canned Pumpkin 
  • Cranberry Sauce 
  • Evaporated Milk 
  • Peanut Butter 
  • 2 lbs bags of Rice 
  • Dried Beans 
  • Pudding Mix 
  • Boxed Jell-O 
  • Mac N Cheese 
  • Cornbread Mix 
  • Ramen Noodles
  • $10 food gift cards for turkeys/chickens
If you're feeling extra generous, I can tell you, too, that they are AAAAAAAAAAAALWAYS in need of bread, peanut butter and jelly.

If you would like to have a printable list to take to the grocery store.  Click HERE to be taken to a printable .pdf of the holiday list. Or, if you would like to have a printable list of snack foods they always need to feed the kids on the weekend, you can find that here. Whatever you can do, just DO because the kids in our community are counting on us!

So thank you, families of Pack 1910 for your generosity and love.  When we can come together for the greater good of the community, it just warms my heart.
