Have one from your scouting days that you no longer want? 

Give it to Pack 901! 

We will collect unwanted uniform shirts and give them to Scouts who need them.  We also collect neckerchiefs and other uniform pieces as well as gently-used handbooks. 

If you run into a cheap used shirt at a thrift store, please consider purchasing it and donating for this purpose.
