This holiday season local Cub Scouts from the Cascade Pacific Scout Council and their families collected toys, books, household goods and cash donations totaling an estimated $3,000 to help families displaced by the Camp fire that devastated Paradise, CA in November.
Tualatin Cub Scout Pack 35 held a Holiday Pack Meeting at Edward Byrom Elementary School on December 20th to collect donations. On Saturday, December 22nd, a volunteer family from the Cub Scout Pack loaded up a truck with the donations and traveled the 500 miles to Chico, CA. They meet with volunteers from the local Golden Empire Scout Council to deliver the donations to a local warehouse which displaced families could come and take what they need.
This was a great thing that our Cub Scouts decided to do for other families, it was done in the spirit of Scouting: Service above self.
At Pack 35 we believe in the Cub Scout principle of “fun with a purpose.”
The aim of Cub Scouting and Pack 35 is to help children grow physically, mentally and socially into good citizens who are strong in character and personally fit – all while having fun. As parents you will be amazed by your child’s achievements through the Scouts! We are an active pack with excellent resources, activities and volunteers. We remain active throughout the year, providing our scouts with many fantastic opportunities to grow and learn.
Our program is for boys and girls K – 5th grades and charter by the Byrom Elementary PSO.
