Scouting Gear Donations

posted Oct 5, 2014, 6:28 PM by

Buying gear/clothing for growing kids can get very expensive.  Parents need to buy new shoes, clothes, backpacks almost on a yearly basis to outfit their scouts.  For some it's not a big problem but others it's not that easy, this can result in youth leaving scouting just because they feel they can't gear up properly for camping or even buy a new uniform when they outgrow their old one.  Our thinking is there is probably a lot of used gear and clothing in our group that can be put to better use instead of sitting in a closet collecting dust. 

We'd like to try and help enable our members and families with a way to donate or request items.  If you have used items are in need of anything scouting related, shoes, backpacks, sleeping bags, etc..  you can fill out the form on this page.  Add your contact details and describe with as much detail possible what it is you need or have to donate.  Your name and contact information will not be made public and will only be visible to the 2nd Russell administrators.
All submissions will be listed in the recent listings table beside the form.  If you wish to respond to a listing we ask you email "" and a volunteer will help facilitate the exchange.  If you prefer to drop off your items I'm sure we can find a place to store them and list them on your behalf. 

There will be no money exchanged in this process, it will be completely charitable and solely for the benefit of our registered members.
