Support Iraqi Scouts!
The members of the Green Zone Council recieve many offers of support from scouts and scout leaders all across the U.S.! We'd like to take a minute to thank you all for your donations of equipment and funds. Without you, we would be unable to support these young boys and girls and the great things they are doing.
Many have emailed to ask for specifics on how to help. I am posting a list of items that have been requested by the President of Iraqi scouting. There are 20 scout camps across Iraq, so you will notice that many of the items are requested in that amount. Other smaller items are requested in larger amounts (such as flags, etc.)
Some of the items on the list, such as Iraqi flags and scout uniforms, would be easier for us to purchase here with donated funds. If you are interested in raising funds toward a specific item, or if you want to help with any of the items themselves, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks again for all you do for the Iraqi scouts!
