The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers willing to make a difference this holiday season. It is working with the BSA to support the "Good Turn for America" initiative.
"Good Turn for America" is a call to service by the BSA to address the critical issues of hunger, health, and inadequate housing in our communities. The Salvation Army is asking Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops and Venturing crews to help by volunteering during the Army's holiday campaign. Service hours may be used towards Scout rank advancement requirements or Scouts and units may use the hours to qualify for "Good Turn for America" recognition.
Local Salvation Army Corps need youth and leaders to help with:
+ conducting, shopping for and helping deliver Angel Tree gifts for children
+ preparing and serving Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for those who are alone
or homeless during the holiday season
+ boxing food collected as part of Wehrenberg Theaters "Cans Film Festival" on Saturday, Dec. 6
