After Hurricane Maria,
Puerto Rico Needs Your Help
The Scouts and Scouters of Puerto Rico have only just begun to recover from the massive devastation left by Hurricane Maria. They cannot do it alone, they need your help.
The storm badly damaged the Puerto Rico Council’s camp and repairs are likely to take a great deal of time and money to complete. The camp is a major source of revenue for the council and without it, the Scouting program may not be able to continue shaping the youth of today into the leaders of tomorrow.
Your help is needed to keep Scouting alive in Puerto Rico and help our fellow brothers as they rebuild and recover.
How can you help?
Buy a patch
A patch set has been created to commemorate the recovery effort and help raise necessary funds to assist in getting Scouting in Puerto Rico up and running again.
The patch set will include a blue border for $5, a blue mylar border for $10 and chenille for $25. The chenille will be limited edition.

Make a donation
A monetary donation of even the smallest amount will help further recovery efforts and help ensure Scouting in Puerto Rico doesn’t fade away.
Please consider making a donation to the Boy Scouts of America National Foundation’s Emergency Assistance Fund as Puerto Rico continues to rebuild.
