Welcome to Troop 928

Monthly Outings: Troop 928 has a year-round outings program, with an overnight outing every month planned by the Scouts themselves. In addition, the Troop or any of the patrols may plan day hikes or other activities during the year. See the list of outings and dates in our troop calendar. The Troop outings program is designed to provide the Scouts with fun, new skills, and advancement. In addition to meeting requirements for advancing in rank, outings provide opportunities for earning merit badges, including Camping, Hiking, Cooking, Backpacking, Orienteering, Wilderness Survival, and many others.

Dallas Hope Service Project, Sept. 11

Posted on Aug 14 2016 - 9:31pm

We will be serving lunch at the largest homeless shelter in North Texas. Dallas Life first opened its doors in 1954. There are very strict requirements for residents who are chosen to live there and it will be a wonderful way to give back to our community. There are spots for only 18 scouts to serve. The food will already be cooked for us and our jobs will include serving the hot food, serving drinks and dessert, and talking with the residents.

They require me to turn in the names, phone numbers and birthdates for anyone over 18 to have a background check done. I will need all of this information turned into me by Sunday September 4th so that I can compile it, turn it in and they have time to do the background checks. These checks have to be done for adults that are driving or just coming too!

Attire: Red Scout T-Shirt, Scout shorts/pants (no shorts are allowed to be way above the knees), CLOSED toe shoes, and our baseball cap. (If you don’t wear a baseball cap and you are serving food, you much wear a white hair covering that they will provide.) Don’t wear your baseball cap in (as residents are not allowed themselves to wear hats) but have it for serving food. If you are under 12 you will be serving dessert and drinks. You must be over 12 to work on the lines where hot food is served.

Time: We must all be there by 10:30 a.m. to have orientation. We will be staying until lunch has finished being served.

Location: Dallas Life Address: 1100 Cadiz St, Dallas, TX 75215
Their Phone: (214) 421-1380

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I think you will gain so much appreciation and insight by choosing this service project and helping the homeless of our region.
