In a heartwarming display of community service and compassion, the young members of Cub Scout Pack 125, chartered by the Rotary Club of Wellington, have once again risen to the occasion.
Throughout the month of September, these dedicated scouts embarked on a mission to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate by collecting more than 200 food items for the charity organization Cros Ministries. This marks the second month of the pack’s initiative to support a local charity each month of the year.
Cros Ministries is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the hungry in Palm Beach and Martin counties through community collaborations.
Cubmaster and Scout Leader Stephanie King expressed immense pride in the scouts’ achievements.
“Our mission as Cub Scouts is to instill values of character, citizenship and leadership in our young members,” she said. “The monthly charity initiative not only helps those in our community but also teaches our scouts the importance of selflessness and empathy.”
This initiative is part of Cub Scout Pack 125’s broader commitment to serving the community. Each month, they select a local charity to support, reflecting a wide range of causes close to their hearts. From food banks to animal shelters, these scouts are making a positive impact throughout the year.
As the seasons change and the holidays approach, the scouts will continue to embody the spirit of giving and selflessness. Their dedication to making the world a better place serves as a reminder that kindness knows no age and that small acts of compassion can create a ripple effect of positive change.
Scouting isn’t just about earning badges; it’s about helping others and being a good person. With each food item collected, Cub Scout Pack 125 members are proving that they are well on their way to achieving this noble goal.
