Scouting for Food (bag drop off)

(October 27 1:00 at the Wapping Church)

 

By participating in a Scouting for Food program as a boy scout you becoming closer to meeting your goal of helping other people at all times. Our scouts will be collecting hundreds of pounds of food to be distributed to needy neighbors.  On Sunday we will be broken into teams to deliver the empty bags to each home within our assignment and to secure them so that they won't blow away. Parents are needed for this service project to drive scouts to their assigned neighborhoods.

 

Wapping Fair Cleanup

 

Just wanted to let everyone know that the Wapping Fair people were very pleased with our troop for all the hard work we did.  They said today that the grounds were cleaner than they were before the Wapping Fair.
 

I appreciate everyone's hard work!

  

Please support our other fundraisers as this helps with funding trips, buying camping supplies and equipment and help with buying badges for our court of honors.   

 

Thanks again...........Darlene Hofmann

PAST EVENTS

 

Wapping Fair Clean Up (Part Two) (September 14th 8:00 to 10:00)

 

Once again Troop 880 has been asked by the Wapping Fair to help with the breakdown of the Wapping Fair.  Our troop volunteered in this capacity last year and it was a big success with a really great turnout from our troop!  The Wapping Fair Committee said we were the angels in the night because we had done such a great job in a short period of time.  The responsibilities will include:

  • Standing side by side and moving through the fairground picking up any left over trash that may be there  (We will be provided with poker sticks to pick up the trash).

  • Please bring gloves.

Based on the number of volunteers and hours we give them they will be making a donation to our troop.  If any parents (who are not leaders) would like to help out along with the scouts, that would be greatly appreciated as well! Many hands make light work.  We gave the Wapping Fair a tentative commitment of 25 volunteers!
