Meetings start at Collins this week – Wednesday September 11th – Please wear your class A uniform shirts and bring your books.

Cody Porter Eagle Service Project – I will be collecting move in essential items for our Veterans such as body wash, cleaning products and other kitchen and bathroom items. I will have sign-up sheets at the upcoming meetings.
Part 1: Saturday September 14th and Sunday September 15th from 1pm to 3pm, I will be having the Scouts go to certain areas of the neighborhood passing out flyers of what I am doing and what I am collecting.
Part 2: In October I will have a date where the Scouts will come to my house and sort the items that I have collected. Shortly after that I will be delivering the collected items to my chosen Veterans Administration location. Please no food, appliances or furniture. Gift cards and cash donations are accepted and will be used to purchase items for the Veterans with special needs. Please feel free to pass this information to family and friends. I will arrange to pick up or if you’d like you can drop off. Flyer link below for requested items.
