December Planning Items

Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food is the annual food-collection drive coordinated by the Atlanta Area council. It’s a reminder to our local communities that Scouts are here and doing good turns. Each Unit selects their collection date and the benefiting organization.

Scouts Serve!

Want more Service Options? Scouting is fun for sure, but also service to the community. For ideas about how your Scouts can serve in ways big and small, individual or group, see this AAC Service Project Page with a portal to a larger list of ideas for your Den, Pack, Patrol, Troop, Crew – or your Scout and your family.

Journey to Excellence | Log Your Service Hours (and Tell Your Community)

Service Project Done? Don’t forget to complete your Journey to Excellence status report to help your Unit receive the recognition you’ve earned. Any individual Scout or Unit may participate in service activities throughout the year. All activities should be collected and logged into your Unit’s Scoutbook account, or sign into your account, select “Menu,” then scroll down to “BSA Web Links,” select "Internet Advancement 2.0" and enter the hours here. To do that, you will need your Unit’s 4 digit number (so, if you’re Pack 1, your 4 digit number is 0001), then go to “roster”, select “all” or “individual,” “record progress,” and "service hours" for a service project activity you create there. And don’t stop there: tell your Scouting service story to your schools, churches, social media and elsewhere in your community to let people know that Scouting Serves!
