Last month I was asked to find a conservation project for our Cub Scout Pack to do, and I was put in touch with the nicest lady ever. She's the outreach coordinator for her church, which so happens to be the chartering organization for our Pack. And she's the food bank administrator for the little town near us.
You've probably heard of The Big Sweep. It's a nation wide fundraising opportunity for different charities. What's nice about the Sweep though is that volunteers clean neighborhood roads, parks, etc while raising money for local charities; our fundraising benefitted the local food bank. I thought this was perfect for our Pack since the boys could be outside and run around while still helping others. Win win!
