A Scout is Helpful


As you know, many people have been displaced by the Thomas Fire.  If you would like to help those affected by this disaster, please consider donating gift cards!  Restaurants, Department Stores, Grocery Stores, Target, etc.
Any amount is appreciated (even unused balances or gift cards you have around the house that you'll never use).  Tiger parent, Matthew Collins (Kiran's dad), will be collecting gift cards and delivering them to evacuees in Ventura.  He is also accepting donations of pet food.  If you would like to help, please bring your donations to the food drive event on Saturday or the shooting sports event on Sunday.  Matthew will be at both events to accept your generous donations.
