HEART OF THE COMMUNITY

HOC Event and Backpack Drive

On Friday, September 17th in Pasco, we will be helping the Pasco Salvation Army with a variety of activities including organizing clothes, food and school supplies for their school supply drive.   Please consider donating BACKPACKS for their supply drive and bring those with you Friday morning.  (They have other businesses helping with the supplies themselves.)  You can also donate to the backpack drive when you register for convention.  We will meet in the Pasco lobby at 9:15am and will need assistance with shuttling members over to the site.  (Due to staffing issues, the hotel isn’t able to assist us with this.)  This event is intended to be appropriate for a variety of physical activity levels, but please let me know if you would like specifics. 

School Supply Drive

Did you know, in many schools, once the initial school supply stockpile has depleted, that teachers are expected to pay for supplies for their classroom out of their own pockets?  Often, they are spending upwards of $1200 each!  Lodges and chapters can collect school supplies for their local school district and help those that help our kids. 

Suggested Supplies (from teacher recommendations):

  • Crayola Washable markers (cheaper brands wear out in a week or two!)
  • Ticonderoga#2 pencils (cheaper brands don’t sharpen well and break quickly)
  • Glue sticks
  • Small bottles of Elmer’s glue
  • 9x12 construction paper
  • Crayola Crayons
  • Ziploc baggies – every size!
  • Dry erase markers
  • Plain 2 pocket folders
  • Sharpies
  • Highlighters
  • For STEM projects:  straws, toothpicks, Playdough, String, washable paints, washable watercolors, popsicle sticks

If your lodge makes a donation, please email me a photo of the event!

TOMMY MOOSE:

On Sunday, September 19th, we will be donating stuffed Tommy Moose to local police and fire officials.  If your lodge or chapter would like to order and donate Tommy Moose to this event, please let me know by August 15th. 

Questions?  Please let me know!
