Getting involved is very simple; get an area assignement, pick the the bags, distribute the bags in your neighborhood and then pick up the filled bags and deliver them to the distribution center.

Bags go out on Saturday Feb 8th and filled bags picked up on Saturday February 15th. More information.
The cards are a great bargain and are quite easy to sell. With just a little effort, your scouts can sell enough cards to pay for their summer camp.
Sales begin Feb. 18. You can sign up your unit here. Please do so by Feb. 11 so we can have your cards ready for pick-up Feb. 18 at Lake Highlands Presbyterian Church, 8525 Audelia Road, Dallas, 75238. Read more.

A Court of Honor or Blue and Gold banquet is an excellent time to include this presentation. It will only take a few minutes to complete. You may schedule the event on-line
