Due to COVID-19, our April Day of Service has been postponed until the Fall.Meanwhile, Scouts and their families can still help those less fortunate in their communities. Food banks, food pantries, shelters and clinics are still in need. Share some non-perishable food or other needed items with community partners (please consult website links below for details about each):
- Chester County Food Bank and Member Agencies
- It Takes A Village Food Boxes
- Safe Harbor of Chester County
- Home of the Sparrow
- Community Volunteers In Medicine (contact [email protected], needed items include soft bristle toothbrushes, floss, Crest or Colgate toothpaste, non-alcohol mouthwash, and new or gently used children’s picture books)
We would like to recognize individual Scouts’ volunteer efforts while practicing social distancing. Please use this SignUpGenius link to list the way in which you’ve helped your community and please email photos of your service to [email protected] .
Thank you and stay safe while helping out!

The Council wants to continue to provide the Scouting program during this time when people need it most. Scouts confined to their homes are in need of enriching activities that instill the Scouting values we all live by. The Chester County Council depends on the generous donations of local families and businesses. Our Friends of Scouting campaigns and events have all been cancelled or postponed. If you are in the position to donate, any amount helps. We thank you!
30 Day Challenge - Scouts of All Ages!
As communities are practicing caution and social distancing, the Hawkeye Area Council developed a 30-Day Challenge for each Scout rank. Use this at home to help keep Scout’s skills sharp. Click on your rank to see more.
