Community Service

Duty to God and Country!

An important part of scouting is cheerful service and Pack 29 takes service seriously!  Each month, we have a collection for a charity at our meetings.
Also, we will have other occasional service projects for the entire pack or for individual dens.  This portion of our website will have all the details on the community service that our Pack is involved with.

Have questions or suggestion for Pack 29's community service?  Contact our chairperson, Mary Williams at service@pack29auburn.com.

  • September Collection What an amazing response we had to our clothing drive.  We were able to donate 100 outfits to Big House.  Absolutely amazing.  Several people asked about bringing things in later as they cleaned.  We will run all collections except the Shoebox drive and the Toys for Tot drive all year.  While they won't be in the spotlight, any and all donations are appreciated and will be accepted. We have started our change drive and are already up to $11.  This is a good start.  Our goal is $250 for the year, so don't forget to collect your change and bring it to the Pack meetings. Collections conatainers will be at all pack meetings so bring what you can

  • Survivor Collection and Change Drive Kick Off     It is hard to believe that it is almost time for school to start and with school, a new scouting year. I would first like to welcome back all of our returning families and extend a warm welcome to our new ones. For those who are new to Pack 29, we have begun giving back through monthly collections. The collection for each month is listed in the previous post "Welcome to Pack 29 Community Service." If there are any questions please contact me. As with everything, the monthly collection may change as the year progresses.      After an extended summer of feeding the hungry, the AUMC Food Pantry shelves are bare. Please join me in helping to restock the shelves for ...

  • Welcome to Pack 29 Community Service Welcome to Pack 29!  We are expecting another great year in scouting.  As always there are lots of activities to participate in through school, sports, and scouting.  Since scouting means doing, we will be doing more to give back to community.   There are several ways we will be accomplishing this: monthly collections, work days, and a year-long change drive. The year-long change drive will benefit Big House (http://www.ourbighouse.org/).  Big House is an organization dedicated to meeting the needs and improving the quality of life for children in foster care.  They do this through the clothes closet, birthday club, swimsuit & towel drive and many other activities that support children in foster care. Monthly collections will benefit ...
