EVENT: 2016 GLV Red Cross Heroes
Our Cub Scout Bear Den, of Pack 1600 (Jordan U.C.C., Allentown) is learning how we can do our part in our community, and also learning what it means to contribute as an active citizen of our great nation. We've learned about great figures in American history, and we recently toured the stables of a mounted police team in our area. The horses were really cool...and friendly! But now it's time to do our part. We've selected the Heroes Campaign of the American Red Cross as a charity we would like to help. Through our local affiliate, we have set up a 2-part fundraiser to make our contribution. We are collecting "loose change" over the month of March, and we are also informing everyone of a website through which they can donate a small contribution which will help us reach our goal. The funds being raised will help the American Red Cross provide disaster relief kits, blankets, hot meals, shelter and care for those in need, especially the elderly and children. We are particularly interested in this fundraiser because it also helps provide diapers, wipes ands formula for babies in need. Please consider helping the Bears of Pack 1600 succeed in reaching their goal!
