Giving Tree to Help Scouts in Need

The Patriots’ Path Council’s Scout Shops 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 accomplished through the Holiday Giving Tree program continuing through December 19, 2020. 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 Cedar Knolls and Mountainside Scout Shops with holiday giving cards on it. Each card will have the first name of the Scout along with the uniform items he or she needs. There will also be a space for other items he or she may want such as books, crafts, camping items, etc. Customers and Scout supporters can purchase the item(s) and give them to the store staff to collect for each Scout.

We will keep the name of the individual(s) confidential. Only the store manager 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.

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact the store manager by email at [email protected]. Thank you in advance for your assistance. With leaders like you, this program will greatly benefit our Scouting community.
