One of the main rolls of the Activities and Civic Service Committee is to help units with Community Service. Doing service projects in our communities is not something that our Packs and Troops struggle with. The biggest struggle is logging all of the service the Scouts do.
It is important to get these hours logged. This helps your unit and the district know how we are doing in servicing our community. Just think how impact-full it is when you talk to people about your unit and tell them the actual number of service hours your Scouts contributed to our community. People are always surprised to here what young people are doing.
