Local Scouts

looking for new,

used uniforms

The local Cub Scouts and Boys Scouts are starting a “Uniform Closet” for boys who cannot afford to purchase uniforms. Richard Vowell is heading up this drive. He is asking anyone in the community who has old uniforms to please donate them to this drive.  They are accepting any and all items including pants, belts, shirts, socks, neckerchiefs, neckerchief slides, hats, and boots.

They would also accept monetary donations for this cause. Vowell states that there is a real need for these uniforms. “We try to make it possible for any boy to be in the Scouts, if he wants to be.  

There are scholarships available as well, if a boy wants to be involved, but cannot afford it” Vowell said.  If you have any of the above items, you can drop them off at Vowell and Sons, at the corner of Broadway and Rebecca Streets. You may also call Richard at 731-587-2542.
