Pack 8 Delivers Sustainable Lunches to Local Charity

Pack 8 delivers sustainable lunches to local charity.

Chatham Cub Scouts - Pack 8 recently delivered 200 sustainable lunches to Bridges Outreach, Summit.  

The donation was a product of a night of collaboration between the scouts and their families during a pack meeting dedicated to Citizenship and Community Responsibility. 

The 70+ scouts were very excited to help others in the community and Bridges Outreach provided the connection to those in need.  Each scout assembled 2 - 3 lunches from food donated by the Pack 8 family for distribution to the homeless in Newark and Irvington.  

The sustainable lunches assembled were comprised of non-perishable food and included a tuna meal, box drink, fruit cup, granola bar, salty snack and a dessert. The scouts also included a personal message with each lunch as well.  

Pack 8 plans to run other food drives and charitable events in the future to benefit local causes.
