Service Projects: Donate a Thanksgiving Dinner & Elf Bags

Posted by jvandyke on Oct 24 2021 - 2:02pm
The Scout Law says "A Scout is Helpful" and the oath says "...I will do my best...to help other people at all times".  Both of these projects benefit Boyertown Area Multi-Service who provides assistance for local families and seniors in a variety of ways.
 
Donate A Thanksgiving Dinner:
Multi-service provides families with the necessary food for a full Thanksgiving dinner, something many of us take for granted.  We are challenging each patrol (and den at the Pack level) to fill a bag with the requested items.  Utilize the sign-up genius links below to indicate which item(s) you can provide.  You are not limited to only getting items for your patrol - all donations are appreciated.  See attached multi-service flyer.
 
Boxes labeled with each patrol name will be put out at the Church for your donations.  Please have all donations in by Tuesday 11/9 so we can assemble the bags.  If need be, you can also drop your donations off the Van Dyke house.  If you are donating a turkey (consider using those grocery store points), please contact Jen Van Dyke to make arrangements so it can be kept frozen.  If you don't have time to shop, you can Venmo a donation to Jennifer Van Dyke @jennifer-vandyke-11 or provide a cash donation at the front desk and we will purchase items off the list that are still needed - put Thanksgiving in the comments.
 
 
 Elf Bags:
One of our Troop families, the Berger's run the PJ project which helps provides new pajamas to children in need including those in shelters.  At the holidays, they prepare Elf Bags for the Boyertown Area Multi-service to give out to the families they serve.  The bags include new holiday pajamas, a new family game, a holiday book, popcorn and hot chocolate.  See attached flyer.
 
The items they are most in need of include:  Adult and larger kid (10/12, 14/16, 16/18) new holiday pajamas and family games for older kids (think ages 8-16 such as monopoly, sorry, and other family favorites).  New holiday books, individual microwavable popcorn bags, and individual hot chocolate packets will also be accepted.  Donations will be accepted through Tuesday 12/7. 
  
Consider using store rewards such as Kohl's cash that you may not otherwise use towards these items.  If you don't have time to shop, you can Venmo a donation to Jennifer Van Dyke @jennifer-vandyke-11 or provide a cash donation at the front desk and we will purchase pajamas / games with the collected funds. 
 
Questions: Contact Jen Van Dyke at jtra367@yahoo.com or via text/phone at 484-942-9802

Why volunteer?.... not just for service time rank advancement

Posted by mtrexler on Apr 14 2021 - 6:42pm

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
