Subject: Troop 927 Needs Your Help This Saturday (6/27)
To: wtalthoff@...To any and all Scouts, Scouters, Venture Scouts, Arrowmen, and even parents...As part of the upcoming Centennial celebration, Los Angeles Area Council has asked each district to participate in "Pay It Forward", a council-wide series of service projects in which Boy Scouts go out into the community to remind the public that "a scout in helpful."This weekend, Thunderbird district is doing its "Pay It Forward" project by serving meals to the needy this Saturday and Sunday at the Union Rescue Mission in downtown Los Angeles. Each T-bird Troop had a different shift, and everyone here thought the 4:30 Saturday dinner shift was covered, but we just found out it's not. So, we need to find 15 scouts and/or parents over the age of 12 who can serve one shift of meals. We have five volunteers so far, which means WE NEED TEN MORE to keep our commitment to the Union Rescue Mission and not risk the reputation of the BSA and its century-long tradition of public service.If anyone connected to scouting, adult or teen, active or former, scout or parent, is available to help tomorrow afternoon, even one person would be appreciated. If you are available, please contact Chris Hislop, who is coordinating the shift through Troop 927, at 310-962-7433, or contact Debbie Larson, the Thunderbird Pay It Forward Chair at 310-913-0388. Chris has also offered to muster a carpool from Westchester to the Rescue Mission for those who are willing to help but don't want to drive into Downtown.Any help would be warmly welcomed.Yours in Scouting,Jason BostickCubmaster, Pack 824Cub Scout Commissioner, ThunderbirdChair, Rocket Academy 2009
