A Scout is Helpful - Diaper Drive

Greetings Everyone,

    Scouts are taught to live by the 12 points of the Scout Law: " A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent. As we begin our scout scout year we want to begin by teaching our Cub Scouts about how to be "Helpful" to their Community and Country.  Being able to help someone in need is a good lesson to learn.  America has seen the some of the best of our fellow Citizens over the past few weeks in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.  We have seen people traveling hundreds and thousands of miles to help in the rescue and clean-up efforts.  We would like to show our Scouts a physical representation of how we can help our fellow citizens who are in need.  Many times those in need of aid put their efforts into food and shelter.  Many times when aid packages are being distributed, we don't always give the basic needs to the very young or old in the way of diapers.

    I am asking that at the September 11th Rally Night and September 18th Den Meetings that we bring at least one pack of either Youth Diapers, Adult Diapers, or Wipes.  All of these will be collected and added to what the City of Stow will be sending to the Texas Diaper Bank.  We will also accept financial donations, but would rather give diapers.  All donations will be delivered on September 19th to the City of Stow.  We will also be asking our big brothers and sisters in scouting, Boy Scout Troop 48 and Venture Crew 2048, to help as well.  They are being challenged to fill Mr. Grove's Van.
