Replace Stolen Camping trailer/Gear

$2,855 of $11,000 goal

Raised by 55 people in 4 months
Created September 27, 2017
Troop 895 is looking to replace their stolen 12 ft. carrier trailer and all of the equipment that was stored inside of it.  Everything from tents, stoves, patrol boxes, flags, games, propane tanks, and so much more!  This Boy Scout troop was established in 1954 and has a long history of community service in Chula Vista!  There are currently 15 scouts in the troop.  The scouts are saddened by the theft of this newly donated trailer, but are hopeful that this Gofund account will help to put them back on the scouting trail.   Thank you for your generous donation!!! Your donation is tax deductible.The troop flag was stolen as well.  At the top of the flag, there were many ribbons that the scouts have earned over the years!  
Here are just a few photos of the equipment that was stolen.  It will all need to be replaced.

The scouts participate and volunteer in many community events.  (Below is the  flag ceremony at the Elks Lodge in Chula Vista.)

Thank you for supporting the Boy Scouts of Troop 895!

We wanted to update everyone!!!! The scouts have been able to make progress towards rebuilding their equipment inventory. They have the minimum equipment needed for weekend camp outs. However, more will be needed for extended outings and to purchase a trailer. Thank you for your contributions. Please continue to spread the word as we are still in need of equipment.
