Cub Scout Pack Collects and Donates Shoes
More than 250 pairs of shoes were collected and donated to Planet Aid during the month of November by members of the Cub Scout Pack 825 from Chapel Hill, NC.
Mr. Ethan Beattie, the pack's Assistant Cubmaster, said that this project applied one of the twelve points of the Scout Law: A Scout is Helpful.
The pack, consisting of about 70 Scouts, gathered the shoes from family, friends, and the community. “We chose Planet Aid because we wanted to show we could help other people at the same time we help the planet,” Mr. Beattie said. “We understood that Planet Aid provided an avenue to keep those shoes out of our landfill.”
A big “Thank You!” to Pack 825 from all of us at Planet Aid.
