This week thanks to sales from The UP Store my wife and I were blessed with the opportunity to take Troop 333 out on to the streets and give out food, tents and sleeping-bags to the Homeless. One boy from the Boy Scout Troop told my wife, Kansa that he regrets that he would not be able to to the same thing next year.
“Scouting is a wonderful way for otherwise sheltered boys to see the realities of the world in a safe environment,” on of the parents told our Bishop when we got back. Most troops collect cans in food drive but and so do we. But this year thanks to a donation from the UP Store our boys got to see the faces of the people that they were helping. Remember that every purchase goes towards more Tents and Food for those who don’t have a place to warm up this winter.
