Hello again Pack 400 families!
This year for our holiday Service Project we have decided on the Scouting for Food program, which is a part of the 9Cares holiday food drive, supporting food banks all over the front range metro area. Details here: http://www.coloradoadventurepoint.org/activities-events/service-opportunities/scouting-for-food/23829.
Pack 400 is registered to help collect high-protein, non-perishable food items and bring them to our Pack meeting on November 15th. Rather than go door-to-door (which is logistically difficult in the mountains!) we have set the goal for every Scout to collect from his family and two friends, neighbors, or friendly strangers.
Please try to avoid glass jars when possible; 9Cares will take these but they can be damaged and get messy. Please discuss with your Scout why we are collecting healthy, high protein foods for those who don’t have enough to feed their families this holiday season.
Please bring your collected donations to our November Pack meeting and be sure to find the designated area for your den. We will be keeping an eye on which den is able to solicit the most generous donations.
