Pilgrim Cleaners seeks Boy Scout uniform donations

Pilgrim Cleaners will hold its sixth annual uniform collection campaign, “Scouting for Uniforms,” with media sponsors Sun Newspapers and KARE 11.

During the entire month of July, all 25 Pilgrim Cleaners locations will accept donated Scout uniforms, clean them and deliver them to the Northern Star Council of the Boy Scouts of America for distribution to Scouts in need.

Cub Scout uniforms – the blue shirts worn by boys in first through third grade – are the greatest need this year. Boy Scout, Venturer and adult leader uniforms are also needed, as well as accessories such as belts, neckerchiefs and hats.

Uniforms may be dropped off at any Pilgrim Cleaners during regular business hours, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Visit pilgrimdrycleaners.com to locate the store nearest you.

Uniforms can also be dropped off at the St. Paul Scout Service Center at 393 Marshall Ave., and the Golden Valley Scout Service Center at 5300 Glenwood Ave. between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Financial gifts may be sent to Northern Star Council BSA, Attn: Kent York, 393 Marshall Ave., St. Paul, MN 55102.
