“I WAS THIRSTY, AND YE GAVE ME DRINK.”
Now, this should be easy for all Scouts. This past year has been peppered with people needing clean drinking water. Some people are still in dire need. Contact your local Red Cross of America. They know where it is needed. Imagine the thirst you could quench if each Scout donates as much water as they are able. It could go to Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico, Flynt, Michigan, California or even other countries. Also, talk to your local food bank as your own neighbors might need clean water as many areas are requiring residents to boil their tap water.
