This year, we are again offering an opportunity for our Scout Leaders, Parents, and Community Friends to help local scouts who are in need of uniforms and other scouting needs, to purchase these items from the Scout Shop. This program is similar to the Angel Tree concept whereby we receive requests and tags are made and hung on the Lone Scout Giving Tree located at the Scout Service Center. Last year, we had all requests filled by generous folks and we hope to have the same result this year!
The letter that is attached explains the entire program and more importantly, asks that you print off copies and/or email it to all your parents and leaders so they can nominate those in need from your Pack or Troop who are financially challenged and may not be able to have needed items.
Any questions should be directed to Heidi at 806-358-6500. This program starts on November 19 and ends on December 14 in order to get the items to the applicable person.
Thank you for your support!
