Cub Scout pack 603 and Boy Scout troop 612 of San Lorenzo have performed Christmas tree curbside pickup and recycling as our primary fundraiser for many years. Your donations are a critical part of our ability to provide a quality Scouting program for local youth. We thank you for your support.
The next tree recycling pickup is
Saturday January 2nd 2016 and includes portions of the San Lorenzo Village area. We pickup your tree curbside – no reservation required for residents within our Coverage area map.
Leaving Your Tree for Curbside Pickup –
Please place your donation in the envelope that was attached to your flyer. The suggested donation is $15-$30 per tree. All your donations go directly to fund the local Scouting programs here in San Lorenzo. This is our main fundraiser for the year and we appreciate your support! Please make checks payable to “Boy Scouts of America”.
Seal the envelope and place it on the bottom of the tree with a rubber band. Also please consider putting the envelope inside a small ziploc bag in bad weather.
Please place the tree curbside in front of your residence. If that is not possible, place the tree at the nearest cross street corner. Trees need to be out before 9 AM before pickup begins.
For safety reasons, we cannot accept trees with tinsel, flocked trees, trees with nails, artificial trees, wreaths with metal shape wires, or trees with any other metal attached. Thank you for your understanding.
Scouting for Food is an annual food collection orchestrated by Scouts from San Francisco Bay Area Council. Local Scouts distribute plastic bags to homes across the region and return to pick up the bags, now filled with food, one week later. Collected food is distributed to needy families throughout the communities of the Council.
Cub Scout packs and Boy Scout troops throughout the Council will be distributing Scouting for Food donation bags in local neighborhoods. They return to collect those bags one week later.

As part of their summer activities, Pack 603 spent the day at Cull Canyon Regional Recreation Area enjoying the 1.5 acre swim lagoon. The pack payed for all boys and bought tons of pizza and water for everyone. Several families showed up which was great for the kids to have fun and bond while the parents could chat or play too. All thanks to the generous support of those who contribute to our various fundraisers and events. Thank you.
Tonight was the Scout’s 2015 Blue and Gold celebration which included seven WEBELOS passing onto the Boy Scouts and a fundraiser cake auction. We ended up winning our own cake back, which makes the boys very happy.
