As part of the Scout Law, a youth learns that “A Scout is Thrifty.” She works closely with the Committee to ensure fundraising opportunities are available so Scouts can earn their way. As part of her Wood Badge Ticket goals, she created a clothing closet. As part of being learning to be thrifty, Scouts are encouraged to donate their out-grown Scouting uniforms and gear to the clothing closet in order to help Scouts who may not be able to afford these items.
