Do a Good Turn Daily (Select Area)
Have you ever gone to bed hungry? Ever worried where your next meal will come from? Here in the US, we live in the wealthiest country in the world, although more people that you can imagine worry about food on a daily basis.
Locally, we have the honor of helping to support The Network Of Community Ministries
This ministry responds to human need by giving assistance with the goal of helping individuals achieve long-term independence. One of the ways it responds to the community is with the Food Pantry. This NETWORK Food Pantry ensures that our neighbors do not go hungry. This Ministry can’t survive on its own. It depends on donations to provide the 10,000 pounds of food needed to feed our neighbors during a SINGLE WEEK!
In Scouting, our slogan is, “Do a Good Turn Daily”. That means doing something to help others each day without expecting something done for you in return. A Good Turn was what brought Scouting to America. It is more than just good manners. It is a special act of kindness.
The Northern Trail District has the opportunity to serve own community and do a good turn for the annual Scouting for Food drive. As we train up the next leaders for your State and Nation, we need to be good examples with this great act of kindness. Let’s make sure that we do our part to help our “food insecure” neighbors make sure that they do NOT have to worry about where or when that next meal will come from….
