Scouts looking to recycle uniforms

The Ramona area Pacific Crest Boy Scout District is anxious to obtain any reusable Cub Scout or Boy Scout uniforms that may be available from families that have Scouts who have outgrown the uniforms or moved on to other activities.

Ramona Food and Clothes Closet has offered to collect the disposed uniforms and pass them on to local Scout leaders for refurbishment. These are particularly helpful for less fortunate families that can’t afford the new uniform costs, said Charles Teichert Jr., Pacific Crest Committee member.

Residents are encouraged to put all used uniform items in a bag and bring the bag to the Food and Clothes Closet at 773 Main St. The uniform items will be laundered, pressed, and made available to Scout leaders.

For more information, call Teichert at 760-789-0566.

    I have 2 cub scout uniforms that my boys wore many years ago. I have held on to them because I didn't want to donate them to be shipped overseas and cut up for rugs. Would prefer that some other little boy got use of them. I would like to donate. them to your Food and clothes closet. I live in Ohio and will send them to you if you send me an address. Thank you
