Raritan Valley Community Service
Below is information on various Community Service Projects as well as the way to report Service Hours. If you have any pictures of Service that your Unit or Scouts have done recently, please send them to me. You can check the PPC Website, Community Service page for more information.
Linda Cummings , RV Community Service Chairperson
Reporting Community Service for PPC
With the National system for reporting discontinued we are asking Units to report service hours on Scoutbook ( for your individual records and advancement) and also via the
The website is very user friendly. You do not need a Unit ID # to enter hours.
This will be the only way PPC will be able to track our Eagle project hours and other service hours moving forward. This will also be how we determine the winners of the Community Service Patch for 2021.Remember, you can report hours from any project done during the year prior to Dec. 31, 2021.
Scouting for Food is the Boy Scouts of America’s nationwide service project to help stop hunger in our communities. It began as a Scout’s service project in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1985, and was adopted by the Boy Scout National Organization in 1988. Primarily our Council has held food drives in Late Oct/Early November but you are welcome to host a Scouting for Food Drive at any point during the year. This is an impactful service project that helps our communities. This year the council will not have any plastic bags for Scouting for Food.
Toys for Tots: This year we will continue to support U.S.M.C.’s Toys for Tots. We will be collecting Toys between November- December 11. Please contact me if you are interested in doing a Unit donation.
SERV Awards: Patriots’ Path Council has established its own service awards program called SERV, designed to recognize all participants in Council programs each year, for their hours of public service. Don’t forget to apply for the SERV for all their service hours during this pandemic. For more information go to:
