With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing people to stay home, Scouting families pitched tents in their backyards and followed along with the day’s activities, which included interviews with an astronaut and moviemakers, delicious recipes and craft tutorials. Scouts were also encouraged to participate in a virtual 5K around their neighborhoods to benefit Feeding America. Because of Scouts’ and Scouters’ efforts that day, $102,636 was raised to support hunger relief.
