Weekend Updates

We Need LOTS of Scouts! Siblings too! We will be sorting out the food after collection.

Saturday morning (NOV 11) we will meet at 8:45 a.m. at GBE to begin collected donated goods from our neighbors in Greenbriar. null

WE NEED BOXES! Specific size: paper ream/ banker boxes

I have updated the website with an overall route map that includes all the dens. Now you can simply open your phone to check your routes!!



  • Safety First!
    • Parents should be taking the donations from the scouts and putting them into the cars.
    • Kids should not be leaving the sidewalks to go into the streets or crossover without supervision.
    • Stay with kids when they need to wait for a neighbor to go inside and gather collections.
    • Do NOT let them go inside of people’s homes. If they have an emergency, please have an adult from our group supervise them.
  • We need 1 Driver for each Den/ Group to drive the routes and act as a mobile collection point. Please see me at arrival if you would like to volunteer.
  • Please knock on doors! We have seen a dramatic increase in donations when we started knocking. Many people just simply forget.



We will have Hot Chocolate, Coffee and snacks for everyone when they return from their routes!

Please sign in when you arrive and join your Den. The first Saturday we will be distributing the flyers and plastic bags, returning to collect donations on the following Saturday. This is a great opportunity for the boys to give back to their larger community and help our neighbors. Pack 1863 Cub Scouts will earn a Community Service Patch for this event.
