    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 the upcoming school year. We will be collection kid friendly donations of peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, canned fruit, etc. Just ask your scout what he would like. Collection bins will be provided.

    We will also be adding a change drive this year. All change cololected will be donated to Big House ( 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. Please take a moment to look at the site and review what they do with your scout. Collection containers will be provided to each den as well as made available during each pack meeting. The goal this year is $250.00. This breaks down to about $5.00 per den per month. All proceeds will go directly to Big House to help fund their support of foster children.  Collection containers will first be seen at Survior.
