              A Scout is Helpful

 A Scout cares about other people. He willingly volunteers to help others without payment or reward.

  Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

                                                                             -- Theodore Roosevelt

​  Frodo: I wish the Ring (pandemic) had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
  Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.
                                                                            -- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
