Scouting For Food Saturdays this Month

Published on March 11, 2016,



Saturday 3/12 9 AM – 10:30 AM Flyer Drop-Off

Saturday 3/19 9 AM – 1:00 PM Food Pick-up and Distribution


North Admiral West Seattle Corner of Hill St and California. Look for the Blue Pop-up Tent. Historically we have occupied the grassy triangle on Hill Street.


Scouting for Food Program

Between 1983 and 1985, the average number of households seeking emergency food increased by almost 40%. 70% of those seeking help were families with children. Seeing the need, Scouting for Food was born. The first year of collection, 1988, involved 1 million Scouts nationwide collecting 65 million cans of nonperishable food. As the National Good Turn from 1988-1991, Scouting for Food resulted in the largest collection and donation of foodstuffs ever experienced in the United States.

Why March?
Years ago, Scouting leaders approached food banks to ask when help was most needed. It was discovered that March, in between the more traditional food drive times of Christmas and Easter, is when food banks are at their lowest levels.

Studies indicate that more than 17.6 million American households go hungry at some time every month; these studies also reveal that there are more hungry people in American now than at any time in the last twenty-five years.

Prolonged hunger causes more than just discomfort. Malnutrition can lead to permanent tissue damage and leaves its sufferers-particularly children and he elderly – susceptible to illness and infection.

What is the Answer?
Hunger is a problem we can do something about by working together. Scouting for Food is a starting point. It is an example of our long-standing commitment to community service. Thorough this project the BSA directly helps meet the needs of the hungry, while exposing its members, particularly youth, to the highest ideals of the Scouting movement through a practical and dramatic experience in the principle of the Good Turn.

Our Role
The BSA’s role is to organize the food collection and make arrangements with established community distribution agencies that will warehouse and distribute the food to the need at no cost. The emphasis is on nonperishable food most need for nutrition, such as peanut butter, baby formula, complete packaged meals, and such canned goods as tuna, chunky soups, stews, meats, fruits and vegetables.

Pack 793’s participation
Every March we take the mornings of two Saturdays to participate in the program. The first Saturday we go up and down the blocks of the North Admiral district distributing fliers to the homes letting them know we will be coming back to pick-up food the following Saturday. The next Saturday we come back through and pick-up food and bring to the West Seattle Food Bank. This activity is a bit longer because we also help the Food Bank sort the food.


2015 Report to the Nation from Order of the Arrow

Published on February 29, 2016,

Order of the Arrow2015 REPORT TO THE NATION

From February 27-March 3, a delegation of Scouts representing all programs within the Boy Scouts of America will travel to Washington, D.C. to present the 2015 Report to the Nation to key leaders in our government. 2016 Order of the Arrow National Chief Hunter Jones will have the unique privilege of being one of the youth members of this delegation.

These Scouts, who will be accompanied by a support team of adults, will tour the nation’s capital and meet with various politicians and public servants. Their key purpose will be to present the 2015 Annual Report to key Congressional members from both political parties.

The Boy Scouts are mandated by its Congressional Charter to present a report to the leaders of Congress, including Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California. In addition, each Scout in the delegation will meet individually with a member of Congress from their state and present a copy of this report.

The anticipation for the report is quite high among delegates, including Hunter. “I am honored to have the opportunity to present some of the great accomplishments from the OA’s centennial year as well as Scouting’s highlights with our country’s leaders,” he remarked. “It gives me a sense of pride when looking at all we have accomplished and all of the lives we have touched in 2015.”

For breaking news and updates from the Report to the Nation, be sure to follow Hunter on Twitter, @OANationalChief. He will also be utilizing the OA’s Snapchat, oa-bsa, for the duration of the report. The official event hashtag is #BSA2015RTN.

Additionally, Bryan Wendell, senior editor of Boys’ Life, Scouting and Eagles’ Call magazines, will be joining the delegation. He will post updates from blog.scoutingmagazine.org, and Twitter, @scouting and @bryanonscouting.

Lastly, the BSA will frequently update its Flickr page with photos showcasing the delegation throughout the duration of the event. You can access its albums here.

For an in-depth look at the Report to the Nation over the years, check out Bryan Wendell’s historic overview of the Boy Scouts of America’s annual tradition here.

We wish Hunter and the rest of the Report to the Nation delegation luck as they deliver the 2015 highlights of America’s Scouting program to our nation’s leadership!

Parvuli Dei classes starting up!

Published on November 28, 2015,

ParVuliDei2Part of the Cub Scout journey is duty to god.  Each rank has a section that requires duty to god and one way to do this is to earn the religious medal for your faith. The Catholic medal is called Parvuli Dei and it is a great way to learn about how scouting fits into your Catholic faith.
Patrick Barredo from the Holy Rosary Parish office is offering a class On Mondays from 3:00~3:45 every week for 5-6 weeks – starting Dec 7th.  This class is open to Catholic pack members who are a Bear, Webelos or Arrow of Life scout.  Patrick can accommodate 10 scouts in the class.  The scouts will be presented their medal in Mass on Scout Sunday by Father Oakland.
Please sign up as the class is limited to 10 boys.
