Be a part of Day of Service on Saturday, November 7th,2020!
Day of service is the largest Scout Service project of the year. For over thirty years, the Orange County Council held an annual event in November called Scouting for food. For Scouting for food, Cub Scout Packs, Scout Troops and Venturing crews collected food in a huge effort to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank. In 2018, the event was expanded and renamed DAY OF SERVICE.
Day of service still includes many food drives to benefit Second Harvest food bank and other food pantries throughout Orange County, but we are no longer limiting your pack, troop or crew to a food drive. The goal of Day of Service is to maximize Scouting’s service to Orange County by consolidating a variety of service projects, chosen by our Scouts and Scout leaders. Put simply, we are asking for you to set aside Saturday November second as a day for you and your scouts to make a difference in your neighborhood or community. You get to choose your service project, and tell us all about it by signing up at the link below.
2020 Centennial Service Award: Service to others is a fundamental component at every level of the Scouting program. It is in the Scout Oath (“to help other people at all times”) and is the third Scout Law (“a Scout is helpful”). In this, the centennial year of the Orange County Council, the Day of Service committee is challenging all scouts to earn the Centennial Service Award.
