Charity Commitment

Every year, the Pack Committee, with help from parents and scouts, selects one or two organizations to support for the next Cub Scout year (one formal, one informal).  To be chosen, the organization generally:

  • must be a non-profit
  • must improve the lives of children or animals
  • must have received positive reviews from charity watchdog website(s)
  • must be sensitive to the international community of our Pack

The scouts raise funds throughout the year (e.g. at family events) or collect items to donate locally.  During the 2017-18 season, the scouts raised funds for the Centre Ornithologique de Réadaptation and also collected blankets, sheets, towels and big sweaters, canned cat food, cat & dog treats, and cat litter for the SPA in Oyonnax.   In 2017-18, the scouts decided to raise funds for the SPA in Oyonnax since they were in dire need of funding.  The charity for 2018-19 will soon be chosen.
