Recently Boy Scout Troop 444 out of Colorado was the victim of a theft of much of the boys camping equipment. It was in a trailer that was located in a church parking lot. Negligence of the scoutmasters to secure the trailer aside, it was a nasty theft indeed.
So the company Kelty, that makes camping equipment, stepped in with a huge donation. $25,000 of camping equipment to be exact. I have been a fan of Kelty products for quite some time, and own several of their products, but this makes me a proud owner of those products now. It’s not often that big companies are still are looking out for the little guys in this world, but Kelty is one of them.
From one Eagle scout in Oregon I send my thanks to Kelty.
