COVID Precautions

Everything will be as contactless as possible. Fliers will not be dropped off on doors this year in order to minimize contact and observe social distancing. You can arrange for pickup and make donations 100% online!

  • Drop offs will be done “drive through” style, so no need to get out of your vehicle – our scouts will unload for you.
  • Everyone will wear masks and maintain social distance during pickups and drop offs.
  • A minimum number of scouts doing pickups and drop offs for safety, so please be patient as it may take us longer than usual.


Donations are appreciated but not required for pickup or drop off. Cash and check donations are also accepted. To donate click here.
