April 21, 2020 – Pack 89 Donates to Hillsborough Community Assistance Network (CAN)

At all levels of scouting, scouts are encouraged to do community service projects and support the local community.

Pack 89 would also like to announce that the pack will donate $1000 to our local Hillsborough community.  We have spoken with our Mayor and our local township Committee, and have been assured our donation will go directly to the Community Assistance Network to help our local residents that are in need of food and other basic essentials.

Thank you letter from Mayor Tomson
