That’s a lot of Turkey to be Thankful For!

That’s a lot of Turkey to be Thankful For!

The annual turkey drive was a huge success, pulling in $70 and 17 birds for a whopping 552 lbs.!

Hats off to our Webelos and den leader, Mary Madigan, who coordinated the drive and delivered the goods to Hunger Task Force following our November pack meeting.

Sign Up to Help with the Scouting for Food Drive

The Scouting for Food food drive will be going down two Saturdays this month on Sat., March 17 and Sat., March 24.

  • On March 17, bags will be delivered to homes surrounding Saint Sebastian – from east to west between 47th St. and 55th St., and north to south between Washington Blvd. and Lloyd St.
  • The following week, March 24, the bags (filled to the brim with food, of course) will be collected from the aforementioned area of homes, and, in turn, delivered to our sponsored food pantry.

We Need Your Help
We need your help to: (1) volunteer for bag delivery to a section of homes, (2) volunteer for food/bag pickup from a section of homes, and/or (3) get the word out to the neighborhood.

Scouts volunteering for bag delivery will have the appropriate number of empty bags delivered to their homes prior to March 17. On bag delivery day of March 17, parents and their scouts will have a particular street to canvas. It generally takes less than an hour for a scout and his parent(s) to deliver their bags, though the benefit to those in need of food far extends the 60 minute mark.

Please fill out the form below to lend a hand.

If you have questions, please feel free to call Joe Desch (414-456-9753) or John Loew (414-254-2570).

Don’t be a Turkey – BRING a Turkey!

If you have the giblets, er… make that heart, then boy do we have a challenge for you! At the next pack meeting on Tues., Nov. 15, bring a frozen turkey with you! Why?

The Webelos 1 den from Pack 231, better known as The Flaming Rattlesnakes, are sponsoring a turkey drive for the benefit of The Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee. Educator Kevin Ronnie, will be on hand to talk about the importance of the donation and their mission. And, he’s shared some awesome news with us in advance:

For every turkey Pack 231 donates, Rexnord will match it 1-for-1. What’s that mean? Well, if you do the math (belt loop anyone?), it means that if we bring in 45 frozen turkeys, Rexnord will match our donation and furnish 45 frozen turkeys of their own. The Hunger Task Force would then get 90 turkeys! Gobble gobble indeed.

Let’s bring it all full circle:

  • We are asking every Pack 231 family to bring a frozen turkey to the pack meeting on Nov. 15.
  • These turkeys, along with any other nonperishable food or cash donation will be sent directly to the Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee for the benefit a Milwaukee family.
  • These donations will ensure that a needy family will be able to enjoy a special meal on Thanksgiving.
