Dale to push for national conservation service with candidates McCain and Obama

Dale Penny“Conserving our air, our water and our natural resources is a national priority, and young people want to help. I will make sure our national leaders understand that and consider what is needed to support them,”  SCA President Dale Penny said about his participation in the Service Nation Summit on Thursday and Friday which includes Presidential Candidates John McCain and Barack Obama.

Service Nation is a coalition formed to persuade the next President and Congress to pursue policy that will engage Americans in service to their communities and nation.  In addition to the Summit, the Service Nation coalition is organizing a massive day of national service on September 27th.

SCA invites everyone and especially its alumni force of over 50,000 to lead a service project on the Day of Service on September 27.  Please visit our Take a Pledge page and register your event so that we may include you in our list of service activists.  You can find SCA sponsored events here. And please, tell us what you did on September 27th.  We’ll post your photos and stories here.
