Support our Cause! Help us Reach our Goal!!
On Sunday 20 March 2016, the 55 boys of Cub Scout Pack 351 in Manila, Philippines will bowl to raise money for poor and vulnerable kids that live in the ‘Smokey Mountain area’ of Tondo, Manila.
Thousands of families live in the Smokey Mountain area, many literally scraping together a living from scavenging recyclable items and food from the garbage dumps. Good health and a good education are the basic needs of every child. Children in the slums lack both. They become sick and malnourished due to their living conditions and lack of nutritious food. They don’t attend school because they have to work instead.
Young Focus is a fantastic local NGO that has been working in this difficult area since 1992. They have several programs to break the cycle of poverty for these children through education and health care. Please read more about them here: http://www.youngfocus.org.
Family and friends are encouraged to support our Cub Scouts as they play two games of bowling in our 2nd Annual BOWL-A-THON. Donations raised by the boys will go directly to Young Focus.
IF YOU ARE PLEDGING ON BEHALF OF A PARTICULAR SCOUT, PLEASE NOTE HIS NAME ON YOUR DONATION SO WE CAN ENSURE YOUR PLEDGE IS RECOGNIZED FOR HIM.
