Join us in supporting the Mt. Olympus District of the Boy Scouts of America, (MOBSA) by making purchases or donating directly during our “Community First Saturday” event on Saturday August 4th, 2018. MOBSA representatives will be present at Hartnagel Building Supply and Angeles Millworks, informing visitors and customers about their outstanding organization. 5% of all retail sales collected that Saturday and 100% of donations taken in the store, now through then, will be awarded to this incredible organization!
Funds raised at the stores will be used to help support the Mt. Olympus District of the Boy Scouts which serves all of Clallam County and Jefferson County. With our help the important programs of the Boy Scouts will get the support needed to continue in building the character and ethics of young boys and girls.
We chose the Mt. Olympus District of the Boy Scouts of America as a Community First Saturday recipient because we believe that our local youth deserve support in organizations that help them build the facilities and skills to become inspirational and empowered adults. The tenets of the Boy Scouts have proven themselves to be instrumental in the creation of responsible members of society that encourage growth through selfless actions. We are confident they deserve the support and promotion from companies like ours and customers like you!
The Mission Statement of the Boy Scouts of America is:
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
The Vision Statement of the Boy Scouts of America is:
The Boy Scouts of America will prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.
The Boy Scouts of America (the BSA) is one of the largest Scouting organizations in the United States of America and one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with more than 2.4 million youth participants and nearly one million adult volunteers. The BSA was founded in 1910, and since then, more than 110 million Americans have been participants in BSA programs at some time. The BSA is part of the international Scout Movement and became a founding member organization of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1922.
The traditional Scouting divisions are Cub Scouting for children in grades K-5, Boy Scouting for youth ages 11 to 18 and Venturing and Sea Scouting and Exploring for young men and women ages 14 (or 13 and having completed the 8th grade) until 21. Learning for Life is a non-traditional subsidiary that provides in-school and career education through Exploring Clubs.
Beginning in 2018, girls have the opportunity to join Cub Scout dens, and in 2019, programs for older girls will make it possible to earn the rank of Eagle Scout in their own troops.
The BSA operates traditional Scouting by chartering local organizations, such as churches, service clubs, civic associations, or educational organizations, to implement the Scouting program for youth within their communities. Units are led entirely by volunteers selected by the chartering organization, who are supported by local councils using both paid professional Scouters and volunteers.
Mark it down on your calendar, set a reminder on your phone and pledge to come on down to Angeles Millwork or Hartnagel Building Supply, Saturday August 4th, and shop with a purpose. Community non-profits help to keep our communities whole, profitable and productive. But it can’t be done without everyone’s help. Your participation matters!
