2020 Community Service Project:
We are pleased to be partnering with the Shawnee Mission School District for our 3rd Annual Backpack Drive for school supplies. This is a great opportunity for all Scouts to give back to those in our local school district. We have been asked to commit to 150 backpacks again this year, and just like last year, we are sure to exceed the expectation. 
 
Now is a great time to help collect the needed supplies with the back-to-school sales going on in local stores. To help facilitate the needs of the district we have created a Sign Up Genius so you can sign up as a unit or for a personal contribution.
