Open to boys from the first through fifth grades, Cub Scouts learn about our community, our nation, and our world through planned activities and adventures. A troop may learn about law enforcement by visiting a police station. A week later, the troop may discover how to prepare a meal over a campfire. Since 1910, boys have learned character building skills through Scouting. Among the twelve core values of scouting is compassion. Recently Cub Scout Leader Jeffrey Nau's Pack 930 prepared forty sack lunches that were delivered to Wayside Christian Mission. Sack lunches consisting of sandwiches, fruit, chips, and bottled water are often distributed to homeless people through Samaritan Patrol. Sack lunches are also given to our homeless clients who have daytime jobs. They can leave the mission for work and be assured of having a noonday meal. This project benefited our homeless neighbors while giving these young boys an opportunity to put one of their twelve core values into action. And judging by the photos, these guys had a lot of fun, too! Jeffrey Nau added, “I hope the lunches were able to be given in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to those in need.” Many thanks to these amazing Cub Scouts! Their compassion is appreciated!
