About Uniform Exchange
Donate, Purchase, or Receive an Experienced Uniform
If you're looking to purchase, donate, or receive a a good condition, used, uniform - we can help. The goal of the Uniform Exchange is to see that every Scout has a uniform. If you cannot afford our donation suggestions, please let us know and we will take care of you!
You can purchase uniforms at the Golden Valley Scout Office (5300 Glenwood Ave) on the second and third Thursday of each month between
7-8:30 pm to pick up a great, experienced uniform shirt, pants, shorts,
socks, or hat far cheaper than a brand new one. Looking for Cub Scouts, Boys Scouts, or
Venturing items? We cover them all.
It's best to visit in person to try
on your new uniform, but you can also email a request form and we'll do our best to find the perfect uniform for you! We'll find a way to get it to you (but it may take a bit longer).
Bring your experienced uniform to either of our Golden Valley or St. Paul Scout Service
Centers and we'll happily get it in the hands of a Scout who needs one! Cub
Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers all need shirts, pants, shorts, socks
and hats but they prefer up-to-date items without holes or stains.
Keep your t-shirts, sweatshirts, patches, and books along with the great memories
from your days wearing the uniform!
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, families who cannot afford any portion of the cost of a uniform can receive one at no charge. Just let our volunteers know at exchange or on the uniform request form. Further documentation is not required.
Pilgrim Cleaners Annual Uniform Drive
Scouting for Uniforms is an annual drive held in July by Pilgrim Cleaners - a community minded business which also originated Coats for Kids. All of their locations collect and clean donated uniforms to replenish our uniform exchange. Since 2007, more than 3,400 uniforms have been re-purposed through this campaign.
