Our Community Service

Completing service projects is one way that our Cub Scouts keep their promise “to help other people.” While a Scout should do always his best to do a good turn daily, a group service project is a bigger way to contribute to the community of Douglas and surrounding towns. And, while they’re giving service, they’re also learning how to work as a team.  Here is a list of service projects that Scouts from Pack 316 have participated in:

  • Participated in the Blackstone Valley CROP Walk.
  • Conducted Flag Retirement Ceremony with VFW.
  • Participated in Public Lands Day at Buffumville Lake.
  • Restored turtle mounds at Hodges Village Dam.
  • Helped design the Sensory Trail for the visually impaired at Broad Meadow Brook Audubon.
  • Collected personal products & snack foods for soldiers in Afghanistan.
  • Made Christmas Cards and ornaments, and sent trees to military families overseas.
  • Assisted scientists by participating in The Great Backyard Bird Count.
  • Removed invasive plants from the trails at Broad Meadow Brook Audubon Sanctuary.
  • Cleaned-up the litter around our streets and wetlands here in Douglas.
  • Marched in the Memorial Day Parade.
  • Donated toys for the Toys for Tots program.
  • Wrote letters & made cards for our soldiers.
  • Marked the boundaries of conservation property in Douglas.
  • Assisted with water sampling for the Blackstone River Watershed Association.
  • Donated socks & winter clothes to the Douglas Community Cares Closet.
  • Visited nursing homes, entertained the residents, & presented them with hand-made gifts.
  • Collected hundreds of pounds of food for our local food pantries through our Scouting for Food Program.
