Community Service Opportunities for Scouts

posted Jun 27, 2013, 9:38 AM by Rowan District BSA   [ updated Jan 13, 2014, 1:44 PM ]
Two local agencies are seeking assistance from Scouts for community service type activities. These requests fall into the category of community service although eagle projects may apply if they are expanded in scope. These are great service opportunities for packs, troops and venture crews.

Communities in Schools – Rowan, Gateway Building East Innes Street, Salisbury

Each summer and fall CIS collects school supplies for disadvantaged children in Rowan County. They set up collection bins and barrels at various local merchants like Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Walgreen’s. CVS, etc. They would like assistance in placing the collection barrels and then picking up donated supplies on a regular basis. Also scouts could assist in organizing and packaging the donated supplies to pass on to the kids.
