Scouts donate food to four local food banks and collect donations of
school supplies for a development project in Mexico
OTTAWA, April 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Scouts Canada has issued a challenge to
all Canadians to join them in doing at least one good turn for someone
else and asking the recipient to pay it forward for Good Turn Week from April 26 - May 4. While a good turn can be simple - like holding the door open for someone
or buying a coffee for the person in line behind you - groups of Scouts
from Elmsdale and the Tri-County area of Nova Scotia and Fredericton, New Brunswick are taking it to the next level.
ELMSDALE AND TRI-COUNTY AREA
Scouting groups from the Tri-county area will be gathering at the
Elmsdale Sobeys to purchase food for local food banks. The project will
teach them about giving back to the community as well as the
fundamentals of being financially responsible and working within a
budget. The food will be divided amongst the Kennetcook,
Enfield/Elmsdale, Shubenacadie and Musquodoboit food banks.
Sunday, April 27 at 1 p.m.
