I had previously posted about a pair of patches available by making donations to the Northeast Region Order of the Arrow Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund Program.
Hurricane Sandy caused lots of damage all across the Northeast Region, and we, as Arrowmen, feel that we need to help. In addition to homes being affected, Scout camps across the region have also suffered severe damage. Many camps are closed until further notice as it is too soon for the extent of the damage and destruction to even be assessed.
Your Regional Key 3 is calling upon individual Arrowmen, Lodges, and Sections to join us in our aggressive campaign to raise money that will be awarded to lodges to help their councils complete projects at their camps. We believe that the powerful combination of money and manpower from members of the Order of the Arrow can overcome any devastation that Sandy left behind. This money will be awarded in a process similar to the National OA Sservice Grants.
The goal was raised several times
Our new total….$29,591, so, the goal goes up to $35,000. We can’t quit as there are a number of camps that need our help.
Please consider making a donation or buying patches. We have plenty left and here is a link to the form:http://northeast.oa-bsa.org/images/stories/forms/hurricane-sandy-fund.pdf
Here is the Silver Mylar border for a $100 donation.
