Bethesda, MD — The National Capital Area Council (NCAC) asks everyone to help kick off our #SummerofService on NCAC Day of Giving —Thursday, June 10.
National Capital Area Council is in the business of making our communities stronger by serving more than 36,000 families and helping instill in our young people the values of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of our donors to ensure we can deliver on our promise to make the DC Metro region a better place. That is why we are kicking off NCAC’s Summer of Service with a Giving Day on June 10th.
“On NCAC Day of Giving, we hope to ignite a spark that will encourage people to give more, whether it be their time or resources, to help make a profound effect on the youth in the DC metro area.” said Craig Poland, Scout Executive of NCAC. “By contributing to Scouting, more youth will experience a program that will further instill values and character in their moral fiber.”
For over 100 years, Scouting families have answered the call to work together in service of the greater good. From public health drives to caring for the environment to assisting neighbors in need. Scouts have always been a force for positivity and goodness in our communities. It is what we do. It is part of our DNA. We serve others. Now more than ever, our world needs that Scouting spirit once again.
As part of Summer of Service, a national effort, we’re also asking Scouting families to give back to their communities this summer through acts of service. Scouts will serve in a variety of ways as defined by the individual. The spectrum will range from large city-wide projects to small random acts of kindness. Although any type of service is applicable, there will be 4 key areas of focus: The Environment, Health & Wellness, Our Communities, and Neighbors In-Need.
