Troop 11 Help Out Those In Need In Several Ways
Members of Boy Scout Troop 11 (Chartered with Christ the King Catholic Church) had a great time at the annual dinner and Christmas Party for Mur-Ci Homes held at Christ the King. The boys served dinner to the residents and caregivers, and helped to distribute gifts to the residents. Mur-Ci Homes provides housing and care for individuals who require assistance with challenges they must face. One resident of Mur-Ci homes has just joined Boy Scout Troop 11. A big THANK YOU to Bishop of Nashville, David Choby, and Christ the King for their support.

Pack 80 at St. Henry's Serves The Community
Cub Scouts is not just about playing games and having fun in the outdoors; it also teaches our youth “to help other people” as part of the Cub Scout promise. One way St. Henry’s Pack 80 Cub Scouts helps others, as a group, is by participating in at least two community service projects annually. On a recent Sunday the pack prepared a hot evening meal for the guests at Room in the Inn. Room in the Inn houses 25 homeless guests at St. Henry’s each Sunday night starting in November through the end of March. The boys worked together to provide the food, serve the meal, wait on, and eat with the guests during the evening. In addition to the Room in the Inn, Pack 80 participates as a group in a coat drive by donating gently used outerwear for Catholic Charities and residents of the Room in the Inn.
