Do A Good Turn for Hospital Caregivers From Home - St. Jude Medical Center

Posted on Apr 1 2020 - 11:53am

Hello Troop 1613 Scouts, A reminder of the Scout Slogan to "Do A Good Turn Daily." Well here is one way you can do a good turn from home. St. Jude Medical Center has put a call out to all kids in our community who would like to send a note of thank you or encouragement to their hospital caregivers. See attached flyer. They will share your appreciation notes with the doctors, nurses, and staff who are helping keep our community safe and healthy. Please mail your note to: St. Jude Memorial Foundation, Thank You Campaign, 1440 N. Harbor Blvd., Suite 200, Fullerton, CA 92835. They ask that the note dimensions please not exceed 8.5:x11". Thank you! :)

Wishing All Troop 1613 Families Well

Hello Troop 1613 Families,

We hope all of you are healthy and safe at home.

What Can Scouts Do: Over the next few weeks, since we are not having Scouting activities as a Troop and our Scouts will be home, this provides a great opportunity for them to review their Scout handbooks, work on requirements and/or merit badges and be prepared for sign-offs once we can resume regular Troop activities. Also, feel free to connect with other Scouts online and via phone to do fun activities together. For example, with parental approval, Scouts have been known to play fun online games together. Please check in with other families in our Troop, neighbors and friends to make sure they are doing okay. A Scout is Helpful, and at this time, Scouting needs to do our best to assist others where we can safely.
