Scouting for Uniforms gears up for fifth year

Pilgrim Dry Cleaners is getting ready for its fifth annual Scouting for Uniforms campaign to provide uniforms for disadvantaged youth in the Northern Star Council of the Boy Scouts. Sun Newspapers and KARE 11 are once again sponsoring the campaign.

Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers uniforms will be distributed to youth who could otherwise not afford one.

The Northern Star Council serves young people in twenty-one Minnesota counties and four western Wisconsin counties.

The campaign lasts the entire month of July. Collection points for donated uniforms include all 25 Pilgrim Dry Cleaning locations, as well as the Boy Scout council offices at 5300 Glenwood Ave. in Golden Valley and 393 Marshall Ave. in St. Paul.
