Each charter renewal packet for your unit will contain a "2017
Community Service Survey" that is filled out and turned in with your
charter renewal packet. This sheet contains all the information needed
to submit the hours and get your unit credit for the hours of service. This sheet is brightly colored and can't be missed.
This sheet must be turned in before the end of the calendar year
(December 31) to allow us the time to enter it for the 2017 year.
Why Fill This Sheet Out?
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the largest community service
organizations in the United States. We provide service to the
community, churches, other non-profits, schools, and more. We use the
submitted hours to tabulate hours so we can share this service with the
greater community. It allows us to show our importance to our
supporters and help recruit more support for the scouting program.
What Counts as Community Service?
Any project that is bennefiting the greater community can be
considered service projects and counted as hours. This includes, but
isn't limited to, Scouting for Food, Eagle Scout projects, camp service
projects, service to your Chartering Organization, service work to
churches, projects at a local school, helping at events, etc.(NOTE: Eagle Scout project service hours are automatically entered at the office when paperwork is submitted).
