Thank You!

Pack 1776,

Our Scouting for Food event was once again a huge success and I want to take this opportunity to thank program coordinators Stella Lei and Ada Ip, the Den Leaders and all of the Scouts that participated.

Our scouts were able to fill a 6x10 trailer with donations for the needy and this large collection made quite an impression at the Food Bank collection center.

Thank you for helping make the Thanksgiving holiday a little brighter for those that are less fortunate. This event is at the heart of what Cub Scouts is about.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. Have a safe and wonderful holiday.

Cubmaster Macey

Scouting for Food Maps and Additional Info

Pack 1776 families,

Scouting for food maps are finalized.  Each den is responsible for an area as depicted below (click on the colored zone to see assignment).  Door hangers will be distributed to den leaders/representatives beginning tomorrow night at the committee meeting.  Participating Scouts will earn the Scouting for food patch and satisfy one of the service requirements of the Year of Celebration awards.  This is a worthy cause and I hope everyone will lend a helping hand.

Thank you.

Scouting for Food

Pack 1776 families,

More than ever before, our community needs us to "Do a Good Turn Daily"!

Our pack will be participating in the Scouting for Food event which runs from November 13th-20th. The goal is to place the Scouting for Food hangers on the front door knobs in our assigned area starting November 13th. We would then pick-up the donated items on November 20th.

Each Den must assign a Den representative to pick up maps with high-lighted routes assigned to each Den and the door hangers. Please arrange to pick them up at the committee meeting this Thursday. The Den Leaders will need to coordinate their Cub Scouts hanging the door hangers on or after Nov 13th before it gets dark. The Dens will need to pick up the donations from their assigned routes after 9:00 am on Saturday November 20th and bring it to outside Coyote Creek School’s MPR between 10 AM and 11 AM.

Den leaders should ensure that their den has representation and, at a minimum, arrange for collection of the high-lighted route maps and hangers. The den leaders are responsible for coordinating and communicating their den's participation in this event.

Here is a document regarding the GENERAL event information. (Details listed in this email take precedence.) A map of your assigned area will be given to you when the Den representatives get the door hangers. Please address any questions regarding the event to Stella and Ada and cc: Cubmaster Macey and Committee Chair Steve.
