Do A Good Turn...

Groups and organizations contact our office from time to time with community needs.
If you can find the time, please consider helping out!

Good Turn for America is a national call to service by the Boy Scouts of America to specifically address the issues of hunger, homelessness, and poor health in our nation but also applies to service to the community in general. By recording your unit service hours on the Good Turn for America Web site, you help Scouting nationwide tell the story of the good our program is doing.
