Our unit activly supports and participates in the scouting for
food, and has turned over up to 2000 items to local food pantry.
The council and local TV help promote scouting for food, and
our local town has always provided the food, as long as the
scouts were available to pick it up.
We also act as a service unit for functions at our sponsor church.
Examples, act as escorts for sick, elderly or handicaped for
'designated' functions at the church. Organize and controll
the parking lot for certain LARGE functions at the church, as
requested. We have also been the cleanup crew for the church
picnic, and cleared tables and dumped trash at church fund
raiser dinners. These help the image within our very LOCAL
community, and the church.
I know of other troops that help keep a local church cemetary
free or trash and help remove graffity etc.
AND at least 1 camporee per year is held at a local public
park. 1 was held in a large CITY park right in the CITY
of Buffalo NY. Other sites, Old Fort Niagara, Historic park,
County Fair grounds etc. Local TV almost always does a
public interrest spot.
Let me know, if you would like more details.
