If you provide the stories and photos and obtain permission from the youth's parents to include their childs name and photo on our web site you will see them here soon. 
Thank you to the Tablet for covering stories about Catholic Boy and Girl Scouts accomplishing good things.


The Sacrifice of an Eagle Scout

For the past two months, 15-year-old Life Scout Theodore Veroutis of Boy Scout Troop #531 in Brooklyn has been collecting over 500 canned goods and other non-perishable food items to benefit those we serve at Catholic Charities Food Pantries.

As part of his Eagle Scout Service Project, which is a requirement to become an Eagle Scout, the highest rank obtained in the Boy Scouts organization, Veroutis and other fellow scouts enthusiastically delivered over 30 boxes of food to Catholic Charities’ food pantry at St. Mark parish, Sheepshead Bay.

Since February, Veroutis set up numerous food collection boxes in his community so that friends and neighbors could donate canned goods. He also collected over $400 in donations from his friends, family and members of the local community for his food drive, which he used to purchase additional food to benefit the hundreds of families served at our food pantry.

For information on  volunteer opportunities, contact Maia Arroyo-Roppo through e-mail volunteer@ccbq.org or by calling ­­718-722-6175.

Service of the Eagle Scouts

Gregory Bianco and Shane Blundell are the newest Eagle Scouts for Troop 396, Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn, led by Scoutmaster Michael Bianco.

Their Court of Honor was held at Resurrection Hall on Oct. 2.

Bianco’s Eagle project was a “Support the Troops Care Package Program.” He collected items to help ease the time armed service men and women spend abroad. Bundell organizes efforts to refurbish Gerritsen Beach Public School 277′s school crest for his Eagle Project.

Eagle Scout Troop 396 salutes these young men for their great achievement.

Pictured to the left is Blundell, State Sen. Marty Golden awarding the scouts with certificates, and Gregory Bianco.

Lunch was served after the ceremony with family, friends and some teachers from St Edmund Prep H.S.
