Sleeping Giant District - Scouts4Scouts Posted Nov. 8, 2014
According to Scouting.org, the Boy Scouts of America has always been a uniformed body. Its uniforms help to create a sense of belonging. They symbolize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Wearing a uniform gives youth and adult members a sense of identification and commitment.

My son, Ryan, a 2nd Class Scout, saw a need to make sure that all boys had the ability to feel that they belonged in Scouting. He created Scouts4Scouts, an organization to collect and distribute gently used uniforms and accessories including neckerchiefs, slides, and hats. Several boys around the council have already benefited from his organization.

Cub Scout uniforms are the most requested but he also accepts uniforms for Boy Scouts and Venturers. Please let me know if you have anything to pass along. We will make arrangements to pick them up. Thanks for helping some young boys join Scouting.
