Service Projects Options in September

Now that we are returning to school and Fall is almost in the air, it is time to start thinking about getting engaged in Community Service activities as a Scout. During this time, community service events are offered in alternative ways and Troop 4 will support Community Service projects that adhere to COVID-19 Safety Guidelines.   Please check out two service opportunities in September you can consider.  Scouts and families can follow the instructions for each to get credit. 

1.  I Love a Clean San Diego Coastal Cleanup: OFFICIAL 36th Annual Coastal Cleanup Day | San Diego County   Simply follow the link and instructions.  For service credit, sign up and let me know you did, and share with I Love a Clean San Diego and me what you did on Coastal Cleanup Day. Provide a picture of  you or your Scout doing a project so we can include it in upcoming meetings.

2.  San Diego Humane Society DIY Projects - Read below and follow the links provided. Decide on a project. Complete a project and send me a picture.  Lastly, fill out the Volunteer Hour Logs provided in the link, and make sure to send to the Humane Society (email provided in the Hours Log) as well as to  me. 

There are many fun Do It Yourself projects to benefit the dogs, cats, small animals and wildlife at the San Diego Humane Society. Making and donating these requested items help the animals have a more enriched experience while in their care. These projects range from simple (dog toys, bandanas, no sew blankets/beds, treat dispensers, rabbit chews, rat hammocks, owl hoods) to more complex that require building (squirrel boxes) 

Here are 4 packets that outline the various projects:

(Items may be dropped off at the San Diego Campus at 5500 Gaines Street between 9-6 daily. Please pull up to the tent at the front with your clean and sanitized items for a no contact drop off.)

Thank you all in advance for your service and have fun!
