Do you have a project that you need help with, maybe we can help. We are always looking at ways to help out our community. By helping out our community our scouts will earn service hours while building a stronger relationship with those in the community and gain leadership and other needed skills that will help them succeed.

Projects can be anything from leading a flag ceremony for a community or school event helping to clean up and remove debris from a park or other social gathering area. Helping with a food drive or even stuffing eggs for an Easter egg hunt.

If you have a project that we might be able to help with, please feel free to contact us for with information and time frame. We can't guarantee that we can help everyone out, but we can do our best.
