The DCP/SAFE Coalition – DeKalb County Partnership for a Safe, Active, and Family Environment recently donated an enclosed cargo trailer to the DeKalb Boy Scout Troop #33. DCP/SAFE is a community coalition promoting community based prevention, wellness and healthy lifestyles for youth, adults and the community as a whole.
According to Anna Stevens, DCP/SAFE Coalition member, “The trailer had been previously used for various community events promoted through DCP/SAFE. The coalition hasn’t had a need for it in the past couple of years and it was just sitting idle. When the Boy Scouts approached us about their need for a new trailer we saw it as an opportunity to help the Boy Scouts in a way that directly relates to the mission of DCP/SAFE.”
Boy Scout Troop #33 has been serving boys in the DeKalb area since 1925. They plan to use the trailer for the various events they participate in throughout the year: day trips, service projects, weekend overnights, 4-day mini adventures, summer camp, and high adventure trips.
