2/28 Friday 6:30 February Pack Meeting

Disability Awareness & Bookraiser

At this pack meeting we will be completing the Disability Awareness Belt Loop. All cubs should come to the meeting with a new story book donation. We will have 4 stations set up and the boys will be split by dens to rotate through them. 

The stations will include; 

  • Project Cameron's Story 5th Annual Bookraiser - A charity started by parents of a premature infant who spent a great deal of time in the NICU. We will be donating books to be given to the parents of every NICU baby to read to them while in the hospital. These books are distributed at Crouse Hospital, Albany Medical Center and St. Peter's Hospital. Each scout should come to this pack meeting with a new story book to donate. Any scout who has not received the Reading & Writing Beltloop can do this at this station also. You can watch this YouTube video for more information on this charity and how it helps families. Project Cameron's Story Video
