We need new members to sign up to help with the Court of Honor Ceremonies, and the Red & Green Banquet.
Having a number of people who rotate helping is the best solution.

Sacred Heart Food Pantry 5K Run/Walk

The Annual Sacred Heart Food Pantry 5K will be held on Sunday, September 27th.  Please see the below information from Mr. Amber regarding the event.  The Troop will be manning a water station, but please consider registering as a participant to help with this great cause!

On September 27, 2015 our 4rd Annual St Vincent de Paul Food Pantry 5K Run/Walk will take place at Nichols Middle School in Middleboro.  

I am writing to invite you and members of your scout troop to join us!  What better way to show team spirit and build team morale than working together to help a very special cause. You can show team pride by wearing your uniforms, shirts, or team colors!  Recruit family members and friends to join your team for this event.  The Food Pantry 5K Run/Walk is an important fundraising effort supporting Saint Vincent de Paul and its Sacred Heart Food Pantry. It provides an opportunity for your students to participate in the mission of feeding the hungry in the communities where they live, while raising awareness of the challenges faced daily by those requiring assistance. Many of those receiving a helping hand are classmates and possibly even members of your troop. Students participating in athletics endeavors should be able to easily walk, jog, or run the three mile course; it is not too long or too difficult. Last year several children under the age of six successfully completed the entire route with no problems.  

Each month the Sacred Heart Food Pantry provides food and other critical assistance to nearly 500 families.  During the past 12 months the pantry distributed more than 750,000 lbs. of food to more than 1,000 households in Middleboro, Lakeville, Carver, and Rochester.Fundraising can be a team effort too!  Set a team goal and work together to reach that goal.  All of the registration information, including fundraising tips can be found on the Food Pantry 5K web site at   It is easy to do and you can be certain that 100% of every gift made to the 5K Run/Walk will go directly towards assisting those in need in our immediate community. Please, become a partner and lend a helping hand.  Your support means so much to those needing assistance. This need is greater than any individual should have to face alone.
