Ethan’s Giving Tree—a New Holiday Tradition

Today is Black Friday, tomorrow the insanity continues; thank heaven for Sunday, but we’ll all be back at it again on Cyber Monday. Tuesday however, is #GivingTuesday; can you think a nicer gift for a deserving Cub Scout than a new uniform or Boy Scout getting his first gear?

Earlier this month we told you about the Ethan Giving Trees in the Utah National Parks Council. Similar to an Angel Tree, ours will be set up in both National Scout Shops with Ethan request cards from Scouts who need your help.  Each card will have the first name of a Scout along with basic Scout items that they need but may not be able to afford. Scouts, Scouters, and Scouting Supporters can purchase the items at their local Scout Shop, and store staff will make sure they get to the right Scout. Ethan Giving Tree feature

If you know of a Scout that could use a gift of new Scout gear this coming holiday season, please stop by either of the stores for a form, e-mail the Oremscoutshop@scouting.org, or phone us at 801-221-1008, and have your leader submit the form back to us. All names and personal information will be kept confidential. We will take submissions until the last day, December 19th, but hurry so we can get the cards on the tree now.

Thank you in advance for your assistance. With the support of our AWESOME Scouting Community, we think we can make a difference to needy Scouts this year!
