A parade of canoes will make its way across Regina Friday.
It’s all for the launch of Scouts Canada Good Turn Week which launches Friday.
Scouts in Regina, Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax are portaging canoes overflowing with donations of non-perishable foods and essential care items for the needy to food banks and homeless shelters as part of the national launch.
Scouts in Regina collected donations throughout the month of April to support Marion Centre and will transport the goods in canoes from Victoria Park along 12th Avenue and up Halifax Street to Marion Centre.
Good Turn Week is a national movement, led by Scouts Canada’s youth, that challenges Canadians to perform an act of kindness for someone else and encourage the recipient to pay it forward, sparking a cycle of goodwill.
The gesture can be as easy as giving up a seat on public transit or as ambitious as organizing the clean up of a local park.
Scouts Canada is also launching 29 additional large-scale community projects across the country (more than double the number in 2015), made possible by a generous donation from RBC Foundation.
