Figured I would take a shot at these!
"Community service time... you(me the scoutmaster) have given the boys -2-
hours time for SFF (Scouting for food)... my understanding is SFF is
mandated by council... does this not prohibit it from service time
Community service is community service no matter who mandates it.
"I have read that troop fundraising time should not be used for community
service time. But what if a scout helps another troop in the same town
with their fundraiser (Yes he still contributes Significantly to his own
Should this time be considered community service?"
It depends on what the funds are earmarked for. The pack/troop/council
general funds would not qualify. Funds earmarked for specific
charities/community service projects and events are a different story and
thus time spent earning the funds should count.
