HOW: Most Effective Methods 

  1. Neighborhood Drive: Drives can be done through the community/neighborhood: pl
  2. Store Drive: Coordinate with store manager day/time, 
  3. Both!! Many scouts have passed out fliers to their neighborhoods, do a store drive with in the week and pick up the neighborhood stuff later in the week.

TIP: Don't hesitate when gathering gift cards & passes -wear your uniform and go ask!! Tell them about your project and ask if there is anything that they'd like to contribute to help the kids you're serving!
