Local Scouts do good deed for those in need

National Good Turn Week challenge for Scouts Canada sees Kelowna group take on community project.

Scouts Canada issued a challenge and the 1st Glenvalley Scouts were ready to stand up and be counted.

The Glenvalley group spent Saturday morning responding to the Good Turn Week challenge by creating and distributing care packages earmarked for the homeless and to Gospel Mission shelter clients.

The idea behind Good Turn Week is to reinforce the significant impact of simply doing a good deed for someone else.

Kelowna Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts, youth between the ages of five and 26, were one of 14 Scouts groups across Canada to take on a community project for Good Turn Week, April 25 to May 3.

The donated and purchased items, including esssential sanitary products and food, were packaged together for delivery at the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints in Glenmore.
