Today we had an awesome activity. We worked on filling pillow cases to give to scout who lost everything in the Oklahoma tornadoes last week. We are going to send them later this week to a Scoutmaster in Oklahoma City who will make sure they are delivered. We invited Cub Scout pack 324 to join us.
Why a pillow case? What was in it? Well we used a pillowcase so they can carry or store it. What we put in it was food, little toys and markers. We also gave them paper, note pads, pencils, and playing cards. We drew pictures and words of encouragement on the pillow case to make it happy looking (some of them were really good too). Some had just pictures or said Troop 356 while others had pictures of flags and palm trees or tic-tac toe games. I was happy to see that everyone brought something and the bags looked very full.
This was a really good project and I think all the scouts had a good time doing it. We will be sending about 50 pillowcases to the boys in Oklahoma. We know that we helped fellow scouts in need.
GO TROOP 356!
