The Ethan Giving Tree 


Hello All,


In conjunction with a national BSA program called The Ethan Giving Tree, the Burnsville Scout Shop is providing an opportunity for the Scouting community to help local Scout members who may be in need of uniforms and/or uniform or Scouting items.


Beginning November 14, the Burnsville Scout Shop will have an Ethan Tree set up at the store with Ethan cards on it. Each card will have an associated number for a Scout along with the uniform items, etc.  that they need or may want, such as books, camping items, pinewood derby supplies, crafts, etc. Customers and Scouting supporters can purchase the items at the Scout Shop and give them to the store employees to place in the collection box.


The name of the individual(s) and their unit will be confidential. The program will end on December 19, 2015 and all gifts will be wrapped and ready for the unit leaders to pick up that afternoon.


We need your assistance to make this project a success. Would you be able to include the attached letter or the announcement on your district’s website?


We need to be able to contact the unit leaders in the districts we normally service. Whichever method is appropriate and easiest for you, the letter itself or a banner announcement, I hope you will be willing to assist us in contacting your units as soon as possible.


Flyers announcing this program will also be available at your November and December roundtables. We have asked for assistance from the district executives to be able to email information to unit leaders.


The Burnsville Scout Shop is grateful for the support from our local districts and we are eager to assist the Scouts, parents and volunteers in your districts. Please let us know how we can best serve them.


Thank you for your assistance with the Ethan Giving Tree. If you have any suggestions, thoughts or concerns, please let me know.
