Scout Shop - late breaking news

Giving Tree

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 8:34:00 PM

The Scout Shops staff are providing an opportunity for the Scouting community to help local Scout members who may be in need of uniforms and uniform items. This help will be done through The Holiday Giving Tree program through November 18th.

The Holiday Giving Tree program works on a donation basis. A Holiday Giving tree (similar to an Angel tree) will be set up at the Scout Shop with Holiday Giving cards on it. Each card will have the first name of the Scout along with the uniform items that they need. There will also be a space for other items they may want such as books, crafts, camping items, etc.

Customers and Scout supporters can purchase the item(s) in their local Scout Shop and give them to the store staff to collect for each child. We will keep the name of the individual(s) confidential. Only the store staff will have access to the Scout’s name and your contact information.

A code will be issued that will match a card in the safe that will have your contact information, so as the donations are collected store staff will contact you so arrangements for pickup can be made.

We need assistance to make this project a success. If you know of any Scouts who would benefit from donations, or if you have any concerns or questions, please contact the store manager. Thank you in advance for your assistance. With leaders like you, this program will greatly benefit our Scouting community.
