Donations

Posted on Jan 14 2021 - 10:24am
2020 has been a challenging year due to COVID 19, and with the vaccine, we have a silver lining and will allow us to return to regular scouting programs.
Yet, many families will need scouting to help develop leadership in their youth and be a distraction to the challenges left behind due to COVID 19.
 
Your donations will be used to offer a more substantial program to the youth of our communities and to offer much-needed scouting scholarships to Scouters in need.
This holiday season, please take the time to donate to friends of scouting and to exceed donations from years past to help secure a reliable program for our youth.
 

Please donate today through our website at: https://donations.scouting.org/#/council/039/appeal/2958

Saddleback Scouts , have you provided service this year!

Posted on Oct 8 2020 - 1:35pm

Greetings Saddleback Scouts!

 

Anasazi, your Order of the Arrow Chapter needs your help.

This years service hours are considerably down compared to previous years. 

If your troop performed any service projects, including Eagle Projects, any hours performed by any OA Arrowmen on those projects can help us out.

Any adults performing service beyond their primary scouting position those hours count.

If you are an Assistant Scout Master, but worked with scouts on a Merit Badge, those hours count.

If you helped out with district and sat on an Eagle Board, those hours count.

Meetings beyond those for your primary role count as well.

Donating blood counts. Many of us provide service all the time and don’t think about it, By recording those hours it will help out the youth of our Chapter.

If you only have a few things to report, that’s great. We have an easy way for you to get that in. Here is a google form for you to fill out and it will get put in by us. You can use it as many times as you need.

https://forms.gle/BQHGL7nFPrUE9F2E7

If you have a bunch of information you can put it in a spreadsheet and send it to Carter Bohn and will get it entered.

The information that is need :

  • Name of person performing the service
  • Service Project or Event or Meeting type
  • Date of service
  • Number of Hours of Service, in 15 minute increments (No more than 16 hours in a day can be reported on a single day)

These hours count for anyone that is in the Order of the Arrow, even if they are not current on their dues.

 

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

 

Thank you in advance for your help and your service.
