SERVICE PROJECTS

Scouting for Food is an annual food-collection drive, and one of the many service projects the BSA has conducted since 1910.

870,000 Bay Area residents and a quarter million residents in our council geography lack adequate access to food. Scouts can help make an impact by participating in the annual Scouting for food drive.

Check back soon as we learn how to safely support our local foodbanks during Covid-19.

Beach cleanups start at our own front doors. Trash can travel through storm drains, creeks and rivers to become beach pollution.  This September, let’s help clean the beach by cleaning up in our own neighborhoods, waterways and local nature areas, including a stream or creek near you!

Check with your local water district or the California Coastal Commission for planned projects.

Have your unit leader log service hours on ScoutBook or their Internet Advancement portal.

For this project you can also record your clean up project on the CleanSwell Ap.
