Gift in Kind

A great way to support the Palmetto Council is through Gifts in Kind.  Gifts in Kind are the donation of goods or service that the Palmetto would ordinarily have to pay for through the council’s operating budget.  For instance, do you work with or for a food manufacturer that would be willing to donate meat, canned goods, or bread for our summer camp programs?  Do you work with an office supply outlet that could donate copy paper or envelopes?  Does your office run a postage meter that they would be willing to donate postage to mail our contributor “Thank you” cards?  Are you an electrician, contractor or electrician who could donate labor and/or materials to make repairs at Camp Bob Hardin or the Council Service Center?  Are you a nurse, doctor or EMT that would give a week of service during the summer camp season?

 

All these types of goods and services are vital to help deliver the Scouting program to youth in our community.  Donations of this type help us keep event cost affordable for our families.  A “wish list” of items can be found below . If you’d like to help in this way, please contact Greg Leitch at (864) 585-4391.
