2019 Scouting for Uniforms
Pilgrim Dry Cleaners heads effort to help Scouts in need
Wearing a uniform is an important part of the Scouting experience.
Unfortunately, there are Scouts whose families have limited resources,
making it difficult to purchase one. To help bridge this gap, Pilgrim Dry Cleaners is holding the 12th Annual Scouting for Uniforms - a
community-wide collection campaign - during the month of July.
From July 1 through July 31, all 27 Pilgrim Cleaners locations will
accept Scout uniforms. Pilgrim Dry Cleaners will then clean them and
provide them to Northern Star Scouting to distribute to families in
Since its start in 2007, more than 4,200 uniforms have been
re-purposed through this campaign. Help us make this year even better!

Believe Us, It's Appreciated
The need continues to be great and, with the addition of girls to Cub Scouts and Scouts BSA, there is even more demand. We are grateful to all those who contribute and are pleased
to be working again with Pilgrim Dry Cleaners, a community-minded business
that started the original “Coats for Kids” program 30 years ago.
