BOY SCOUTS HOST BLOOD DRIVE TO HELP CORONAVIRUS CONTINGENCY

The Black Warrior Council, members of Boy Scouts of America, are stepping up to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Wednesday, March 25, the Boy Scouts will host a blood drive at their office at 2700 Jack Warner Parkway. Black Warrior Council CEO Bill Gosselin said this project helps the scouts live the oath they take.

“In the Scout oath, there’s a line in there that says ‘to help other people at all times,’” he said. “Not just when things are great, not when things are good. We do community service projects throughout the year when it’s easy with churches, nonprofits, schools. But this is a unique time for everybody. And this teaches our scouts to not only recite the scout oath but to actually live it out.”

The drive will begin at 9 a.m.
