Scouting Rocks with Socks for the Homeless

Brrrr....it’s starting to get cold out there and I often need my gloves.... already!!! This of course has reminded me how fortunate I am to have warm socks and gloves to put on, and that others are not so lucky. We can bundle up and put on an extra pair of socks…but what if you don’t have any socks? Can you imagine being outside all day long, with no socks? Well that is what it is like for some of our homeless. Being able to get our feet warmed up is something that we all take for granted…
Last year our Area Scouters and youth collected over 50 pairs of socks that we were able to provide to the Whitby Salvation Army for distribution to those in need.. This year our Area will lead the movement to keep the homeless warm…we are going to show them Scouting Rocks…with Socks for the Homeless….
Whitby Area Scouters and youth – your help is needed!! You can help us by donating new or gently used (clean) socks, scarves, gloves, etc. and make this a successful campaign. Donations can be given to your Group Commissioner or Area Scouter(s) to bring to the December or January Area meetings. All collected items will be donated to the Salvation Army for distribution at the end of January.

Outdoor Camping and Tripping Skills - Workshops by 9th Venturers

Scouters, our youth in the Whitby 9th "Wilderness Tripping " Venturer Company received such a strong response to their recent workshop on outdoor camping and tripping skills from the Port Perry Venturers that they have decided to become youth trainers in outdoor skills for other groups and sections. They will attend regular section meetings and do presentations for any length of time to any section from Beavers to Rovers on any topic. I'm pleased that we have been invited already in January 2015 to do a workshop with an Oshawa Venturer Company. Contact Lewis williams lewis.williams@scouts.ca for more information.
