A Scout is Helpful and we have plenty of opportunities this month to make a difference. Help at one, two or all!
Food Drive: The Troop Order of the Arrow members are asking for each Scout to bring 2-3 cans of food to the Dec 15 or 22 meeting. If 90% of the troop participates and we collect at least 100 pounds, there will be a pizza party on Dec 22. UPDATE: More than 100 pounds of food was collected on Dec 15, but only about 16 Scouts contributed. A lot more Scouts will need to join in to assure the pizza party. One more chance this Monday.
Toys for Tots: Please bring an unwrapped, new toy for the Marine Corps Annual Toys for Tots Drive this Monday, Dec 15. Marines will be at the meeting as early as 6:45 to receive your donation. UPDATE: a fantastic response: we filled a lot more than the box provided. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
Men’s Dress Ties: Please donate any men’s ties in good condition. Ties collected will be given to a local coach who is traveling to Africa soon. UPDATE: Quite a number of ties were collected on Dec 15. One more chance to contribute on Dec 22.
OA Feed My Starving Children: Several troop OA Members worked two hours of service on Sat, Dec 20 at FMSC. Nearly 120 OA members from around our Council packed enough food to feed 111 children for one year. Thank you!
