As a Good Turn for Scouting Project
We will be partnering with Soles 4 Souls in collecting gently worn shoes during the Council Jamboree. Please bring these with you to the Jamboree. We will see how big of a mountain of shoes we can build prior to loading them on the truck. This will take place in the Activities Area close to Jamboree Headquarters. If each troop, pack, and crew will collect shoes and bring them to the location in a bag, we will then add to our pile.
