Food drives have long been a favorite community service. You can also collect shoes, clothing, books and any other thing members of your community can use. Can you make these ideas sustainable? Making a drive sustainable is a great idea for an award project. Can you get a permanent drop location set up and get the word out to your community? Can you get volunteers to help man the drop spot?
You’ll find a wide variety of community service ideas here. Follow us on Facebook to find out about new community service programs and ideas as soon as they become available.
Looking for service projects for a particular season? Our page Holiday and Seasonal Ideas for Scouts includes community service ideas in addition to fun seasonal activities.
Fun Fact: Girls who were volunteers have a better chance of finding a job than non-volunteers.
