A Scout Is Helpful
Following the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy and the storm that followed it, many Scouts and Scouters have already responded with incredible generosity and compassion. This will not be a quick recovery, though, and much help will be needed in the coming months.
Every contribution counts! Please consider supporting disaster relief efforts, if you have not already done so. To learn how you can help, visit the Red Cross Disaster Relief site.
BSA has also started a disaster relief fund. You can learn more about Scouting's efforts to help the recovery and read a letter from Chief Scout Executive Wayne Brock here.
