The Pacific Skyline Council provides these (and other) service opportunities each year.
In 2021, SCOUTING FOR FOOD will instead be GOOD TURN FOR AMERICA (like last year).
During the month of November, units are asked to complete a service project of their choice to benefit their charter organization, their meeting location, or their immediate community. Be sure to report your service hours.

Scouting For Food
“Stake a Claim” in your local neighborhood by contacting your District’s Scouting for Food Coordinator or by attending your District’s October Roundtable. On Nov 6, 2021 put out door hangers in your neighborhood explaining our program to local residents, and then return on Nov 13 to pick up non-perishable food donations. All donations should be delivered to a food bank collection point or directly to the Second Harvest Food Bank in San Carlos.

Help Our Communities Celebrate July 4th with Flags!
We know many families can’t be together this July 4th, and due to the pandemic many people have not been able to prepare for the celebration. Especially those individuals with autoimmune diseases or the elderly. We had to celebrate Memorial Day virtually and during these times it is important that we come together and show our love for this country by displaying a flag on Independence Day! That is why our council is offering American flags to anyone who wants them. Reach out to your community through social media (NextDoor, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and ask who would like one and how to get it to them. Reach out to care homes in the area and ask how many they would like or if you can set up a table outside. Reach out to veteran associations or military organizations in your area and help them celebrate this year! We need your unit’s help to provide these flags to everyone who wants them! If your pack or troop wants to participate please reach out to Todd McGee firstname.lastname@example.org who can schedule a time for you to pick up any flags you need to make this possible! Think how amazing it will be to see every house and business displaying a flag this July 4th!
