Our Pack is going to start collecting items to donate to the Harford Family House which is an organization that provides housing to families experiencing homelessness in Harford County. This is a great opportunity for you and your scout to go shopping for a family in need and make a difference in our community! This also can fulfill a scout’s requirement to participate in a service project if your scout is still in need of that for his/her rank requirements without needing to meet as a group to do so.
All items need to be dropped off to the Elam’s house by Tuesday, December 15th and Kim will arrange for a delivery of all items to the Harford Family House later that week. If you want to bring items to your den meetings to drop off, please reach out to your den leader to ensure he/she is able to accommodate in getting the items to the Elams.
The Harford Family House provides a fully furnished apartment to each of their families.
