Hello Pack 1 Parents!

We're seeking a Scouting for Food Pack Coordinator to help with the annual Scouting For Food community service effort. We're also seeking den coordinators - one from each den -  to work with the Pack Coordinator. If you have not yet signed up to volunteer for one of our pack activities, you may wish to consider taking on one of these roles. Here's why.... 

  • it's fun
  • you get to meet other Pack parents
  • it doesn't require a lot of detailed planning
  • it takes only a few hours, spanning 2, back-to-back weekend days - Sat., Oct 31 & Sat., Nov 7
  • it's for an exceptionally worthy cause, the North Kingstown Food Pantry
  • no need to worry about finding a sitter, all family members are welcome to participate
  • makes a nice addition to the volunteer/community service section of your resume, and...
  • you'll be off the hook for your Pack Parent Volunteer responsibility requirement for the year! 

SFF Pack Coordinator:  Working with the NK Scouting For Food (SFF) coordinator and our Pack den coordinators, your responsibilities would include:

  • Distributing door hangers to the den coordinators
  • Coordinating the dens' food collections and drop-offs
  • Assigning the food collection areas to the den (We have all the maps with the drop off/pick up area pre-divided)
  • Sending out a few reminders with the details about drop-off, pick-up, and delivery instructions.  
  • Recording the number of Pack volunteers who participated.

SFF Den Coordinator:  Working with the Pack SFF Coordinator and with your den families, your responsibilities would include:

  • Coordinating the distribution of door hangers and food collection in your assigned areas for your den
  • Sending out a few reminders to your den parents with time and location logistics
  • Recording the number of den volunteers who participated

If you're interested in helping out the Pack in one of these roles,  please let me know at your earliest convenience.  Feel free  email me ( with any questions you may have. It's parents like you who keep Pack 1 thriving.  Thank you for all that you do!

Yours in Scouting,

Pack 1 Saunderstown
