At Cub Scout Pack 295's recent monthly meeting the theme was "a scout is helpful," which is part of the Scout Law. The lions and tiger scouts (Kindergarten & 1st graders) had an activity called "Color a Smile" for senior citizens (https://colorasmile.org/).

The Wolf and Bear Scouts (2nd & 3rd graders) worked on "Operation Comfort Cards," which will be sent to wounded members of U.S. Military service. (http://www.operationquietcomfort.org/projects/cards-for-our-heroes-a-fun-and-easy-project-for-your-group/).

The webelos 1 & 2 Scouts ( 4th & 5th graders) worked on "Operation Gratitude," making cards which will be sent to members of the military and to first responders. (https://www.operationgratitude.com/express-your-thanks-group/paracord-bracelets/).
