Boy Scouts Donate To Salvation Army

Black Hawk Lodge 67, Order of the Arrow, part of the Mississippi Valley Council of The Boy Scouts of America presented a check to the Quincy Salvation Army on Friday, October 27 during The Salvation Army’s Advisory Board meeting. The Scouting Program recently created and sold a patch featuring The Salvation Army shield. The troop raised a total of $2,300 with sales of the special emblem.

Lodge Chief Isaiah Aden, Past Chief Jack Gunsten, and Supreme Chief of the Fire Todd Lamison attended the meeting and presented the check to Salvation Army Area Commander Major Andy Miller and Advisory Board Vice Chair JoAnn Wilmott.

“The Salvation Army is honored that the Scouting Program’s Order of the Arrow chose to design a patch with The Salvation Army shield this year,” says Salvation Army Development Director Patty Douglas. “We were further honored to be the recipient of $2,300 from the sale of the patches. These funds will help us continue to serve those in need in our community.”
