In regard to "Uniform Banks:"
When I was a Cubmaster, the Pack used to run a Uniform Exchange. We =
would habitually visit the local thrift stores and yard sales look for =
uniform items. Most of the Pack leadership would donate their finds, =
sometimes non-Scouter parents would ask for reimbursement from the Pack =
treasury and it was always granted.
If a boy needed a uniform item, and it was available in the Uniform =
Exchange, we would issue it to him and he would either turn in his still =
serviceable outgrown item for re-issue or we would charge a very nominal =
price for it (about what the item would sell for in the thrift store or =
yard sale: $3 - $5 for a shirt or pants, $2 - $3 for shorts, about =
$0.50 for a cap or neckerchief, etc). The idea was to get uniforms onto =
rapidly growing boys and/or boys from low income families so we kept =
prices at a break-even basis.
I hope this helps you with your project.
