Scout Service Under Shelter in Place Conditions?

Recommended Posts

Boy Scouts from New York donated more than 17,000 neckerchiefs to hospitals and community organizations to provide non-medical face masks for New Yorkers.

...

The idea came from Jacob Finch, an Eagle Scout from Ballston Spa, NY, who suggested that the Scouts could donate unused neckerchiefs as face masks.

I like how they are using a Thai Scout association hat and necker.

NEWTOWN, CT: — Scout started a GoFundMe with a $50,000 goal to purchase gift cards from local restaurants and donate them to Danbury Hospital and Newtown first responders on the front lines fighting the coronavirus.

“I knew restaurants would be suffering from this and Danbury Hospital and first responders would need a little more love and attention,” he said.

He brought up the idea at one of his virtual Boy Scout meetings, and the rest of Troop 70 jumped on board, spreading the word about the fundraiser. The online campaign has already collected about $20,000 in donations since it started two months ago.

The gift cards are purchased in $25 increments from 40 or so restaurants throughout Newtown and Sandy Hook. Many of the recipients use the gift cards to buy meals for the crews during their shifts.

“One part of the Scout oath is you should help people at all times and this is the best time to help others,” Quinn said, adding he appreciates how others feel the same and have donated. “It feels good to know we have a good community that’s willing to help people.”
