Tiger Scouts make a difference for the hungry

One Sunday in March, a group of Tiger Cub Scouts from Pack 496 descended on the Wildhorse neighborhood to distribute fliers to homes in an attempt to secure donations to the STEAC food bank, which supports the needy in our community. The effort was part of an overall larger effort by Cub, Boy and Girl Scouts that covered the entire city of Davis.

The following weekend, another group of the Tiger Cub Scouts, together with parents, returned to the area to collect food donations that had been left out by residents for pickup.

At the Tiger Cub Den’s recent monthly meeting, the Scouts learned that the food collection was a huge success, resulting in the collection of an estimated 10,000 pounds of quality food for those in need. It was just another example of the role Scouts play in the community, and the generosity of Davis residents.

And now Cub Scout Pack 496 is seeking new recruits for its Tiger Cub Pack next year, as the current Tiger Den will be moving up to Wolf Pack. First-graders are welcome to join and experience everything Scouts have to offer. This year, the Tiger Cubs learned about fire, road and community safety, as well as emergency 911 dispatch procedures during visits to the UC Davis Fire Department, Safetyville in Sacramento and the Davis Police Department.

They also enjoyed rock climbing, bowling, picnics, camping and hiking and the annual Pinewood Derby race car competition.
