Sometimes the youngest kids have the biggest hearts for service. 

The first grade Tiger den of Cub Scout Pack 452 chartered by Arlington United Methodist Church in Arlington, Tennessee, recently did a service project for Help Group in Bartlett, Tennessee. Over 400 families were helped.

The scouts worked hard and with a smile on their faces. The community was very appreciative of the boys pushing carts, loading groceries, and all the non-perishable foods and gently worn clothing items they received donated by Cub Scout Pack 452 families! 

Help Group is a non-profit organization in Bartlett outside of Memphis, Tennessee, which provides free groceries and clothing to families in need every third Saturday. Volunteers serve by bagging clothes, registering families, filling bags with groceries or pushing carts to help senior adults or handicapped persons to their cars. Volunteers are welcome to come and go as they serve any number of hours available. 

All helping hands are the hands and feet of Christ.
