Food Pantry 5K / Water Station


The St. Vincent dePaul Society/Sacred Heart Food Pantry is holding its annual 5K on Sunday, September 28th at 10:00 AM.  They have asked the Troop for volunteers to man a water station along the route, but because that is Webelos Woods weekend, it will be difficult for any scouts to volunteer.  It is a time commitment of two to three hours starting around 9:00 AM, and would be a great way to give back to the Troop's sponsor, Sacred Heart Church.

If any parent or family member would like to volunteer to help in this event, I need to have signed waivers from volunteers before the event.  Please contact me (Mrs. Melchin) at castlebeckons@gmail.com or (508) 631-9194 if you would like to help!

Thank you!
