Please join us this Sunday as we give back to our community and GBE through our annual Landscaping Day. Please bring gloves and gardening tools (trowels, rakes, pitchforks, etc.). We will be working together to pull the weeds from the flower beds and spread down fresh mulch. We will provide something refreshing, but no access to bathrooms! This will be a great weekend to work outside together enjoy warmer days!

Reminders:

  • Safety First!
    • Parents should be taking the donations from the scouts and putting them into the cars.
    • Kids should not be leaving the sidewalks to go into the streets or crossover without supervision.
    • Stay with kids when they need to wait for a neighbor to go inside and gather collections.
    • Do NOT let them go inside of people’s homes. If they have an emergency, please have an adult from our group supervise them.
  • We need 1 Driver for each Den/ Group to drive the routes and act as a mobile collection point. Please see me at arrival if you would like to volunteer.
  • Please knock on doors! We have seen a dramatic increase in donations when we started knocking. Many people just simply forget.
