Summer of Service

For more than a century, Scouting has been serving communities. Now, Scouts across the nation are embarking on a Summer of Service to help our communities. Service comes in all shapes and sizes, and after the separation we’ve had in the past year our communities need our help and the Yocona Area Council is proud when Scouts give back to their communities.

This summer Scouts across the country are embarking on a Summer of Service, a national initiative to give back to our communities. Service is an integral element of Scouting and comes in many forms, from public health drives to food drives and neighborhood beautification. A special focus is being placed on:

  1. Health and wellness including learning and teaching CPR, organizing neighborhood blood drives, making and donating face coverings.
  2. The environment including taking a trash bag and gloves on walks to pick up trash, building bird houses, planting a rooftop garden and committing to using fewer plastic bags.
  3. Neighbors in need including doing a chore for someone who cannot do it themselves, collecting school supplies for children in need, organizing a food drive for the food insecure or donating face coverings and hand sanitizer to homeless shelters in your area.
  4. Our communities including writing “thank you” notes to service members; first responders; or healthcare workers, take treats to a local fire station, or volunteer at a community center.

Scouts give back to their communities every day in ways big and small, Summer of Service amplifies that with the #SummerOfService and submissions to https://www.scouting.org/summerofservice/
