Sponsor a Meal at the Edmonton Mustard Seed
12th St. Albert Scouts, Edmonton, Alberta
By Ameliea Sawatzky
Good Turn Week is upon us again and Scouts Canada is rising up to the challenge with their community projects. One of the many fantastic projects taking place is the, ‘Sponsor a Meal at the Edmonton Mustard Seed’, spearheaded by Scouter Sandra McCallum from the 12th St Albert Scout group.
This project looks to assist the Edmonton Mustard Seed by serving hot meals to those in need in the local area. The Group will be working with the Mustard Seed's Food Coordinator to create a grocery and meal plan to serve between 200 and 400 people for one night during Good Turn Week, which takes place April 25th to May 3rd. The Beaver and Cub Scouts will be involved with the grocery shopping while the Scouts, Rovers, Ventures, Scouters and parent Volunteers will be cooking up a storm, serving and cleaning up after the meal at the Edmonton Mustard Seed.
This is a great opportunity for youth to get involved in their community and make a difference in the lives of those who need a helping hand. Good Turn Week is the ideal opportunity for everyone to get out in their community and make a difference. Scouts Canada has been working hard to set an example with the hope that the difference they make will spread throughout the community and encourage others to participate. If every person who is touched by a Good Turn during this week passes on the torch and makes their own difference, the world will be that much of a better place.
Great things happen in communities across Canada when our members put their hearts and minds behind Good Turn Week. It starts with Scouts.
