Thank you to those that lended a hand!
The Boy Scout Slogan is "Do a good turn daily" and starting in 2009, the Committee to Save Pouch camp joined forces with organizations and citizens to collect thousands of petition signatures. All of you showed that the Boy Scout Slogan was alive and well, even if you weren't in Scouting! An online petition drive (which can be seen here) helped collect over 5,000 signatures. In addition, volunteers collected over 15,000 petitions via email, letters, signature forms and online! The support of the community is what will make this - and has made this - a successful effort.
Request a Lawn Sign
You may have seen our white lawn signs with blue lettering around Staten Island. Since the Committee was formed, over 1,000 lawn signs have been helping raise awareness about our cause. These signs were paid for by the generous support of members of the Committee and you can get one for free. Just send us an email at email@example.com to request one today.
