Hazlet Clean Communities & Troop Fundraiser - Saturday, August 6

posted Jul 22, 2016, 11:00 AM by James Borg   [ updated Jul 26, 2016, 4:37 PM ]

We have another opportunity to provide Hazlet Clean Communities with 1 to 1.5 hours of service on Saturday August 6th from 8AM-9/9:30AM, location will be in Hazlet at the Town Hall lower parking lot. We will be cleaning the perimeter of the pool club along the woods up to the skate park. The township will provide all materials for the cleanup (you should bring your own work gloves if you have them). 

This is part of a Clean Communities Grant that will provide us with $10 per participant for up to 50 participants with a maximum of $500 earned. These funds will be deposited into the Troop account to offset Troop expenses. We need a minimum of 40 participants in the clean up in order to take advantage of this program.

Service Hours and SOTY
This will count towards Service Hours for all Scouts who participate. This event will also be used as a substitute SOTY event. This means any Scouts that are short a SOTY event who attend this event will earn the SOTY award. Scouts must participate for the full time the clean up is running to be credited.

This Community Service Project is Open to Non-Scouts
These hours can count towards National Honor Society, religious or any other community service hours requirements. Please share this information with your friends and family. 

Please email Mr.Borg ASAP if you will be able to participate. Include the name of all those who will participate in the clean up.
