Collecting Food For Our Community
Huge Impact Every Year
Scouts in the greater Long Beach area give over 35,000 hours of community service right back to the communities where they live. Without much fanfare or praise, Scouts regularly provide service to those in need.
The Long Beach Salvation Army and Lakewood’s Project Shepherd are two recipients we are proud to partner with year after year. Scouts are called upon to restock shelves in times of need.
