Service Projects are things Scouts do to give back to their community, both local, and long distance. Service Projects are one of the core items taught in Scouting that teach the kids to understand that there are those in life less fortunate and our civil duty to give a hand. Good citizens help to build a stronger community.
We decided this year to write one letter collectively to be put in each box. On occasion, the recipients of these goody filled boxes write back. Since all the kids worked on all the boxes it seemed appropriate to send a letter from all of them instead of individual ones.
It turned out great! Learn more about the Service Projects we participate in, and get more details about this one by visiting our page on Operation Christmas Child.
See what the boxes look like on next page.
These boxes go overseas to children that might not otherwise get a Christmas Gift. It's a great idea!.
