East Brunswick Scouts Annual Food Drive 2016

From Mrs. Lovelace:

As you are aware, last November East Brunswick Boy Scout Troops, Crews and Cub Scout Packs held a food drive to benefit M.C.F.O.O.D.S., Middlesex County’s emergency food network (link). Our drive was very successful; collecting 4,800 pounds of food, $541 in cash and $110 in gift cards. Our drive helped MCFOODS provide adequate supply of nutritious foods and necessities to Middlesex County residents in need.
The benefits we provided to families in our area was priceless. As such, we are making the East Brunswick Scout food drive an annual event. The food drive this year is scheduled for November 5th and 6th. We’re asking scouts and families to come out again for this worthy event.

Collection for the Military

This is for Jacob Iacullo’s service project

Operation Shoebox

Hi everyone,
I am collecting for Operation Shoebox for my Star service hours. Operation Shoebox sends items to the U.S Military stationed overseas. I will bring a box to collect the items to the next few meetings. I attached a flyer with the items most needed to this email. Let  me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Jacob Iacullo

BSA Medical Forms

First aid. Artificial breath. Isolated 3D image

As Mr. Hoffman said at last night’s meeting, if you didn’t get your medical forms, parts A & B, completed and filled out for summer camp then you will need to complete them soon. You can get the forms here or on our documents page.

Download the forms here

This is the email that Mr. Hoffman sent:

Hello Everyone,

As mentioned last night, if you did not attend summer camp, we need to get a medical form for participation in troop activities for the year.  You can get a current copy of the form here.  These forms are editable.  So, you can enter your information and then update any changes for the following year (at least until they change the form again).  This applies to any scouts or scouters who will be traveling with us.  If you have a saved copy from a previous summer camp, note we only need parts A and B filled out for trips up to 72 hours.  Part C (the doctor’s form) is only needed for trips >72 hours.

Thanks,

Steve H.
