Cabela’s Awards Grant to Greater St. Louis Area Boy Scouts
April 17, 2017
The Greater St. Louis Area Council, Boy Scouts of America received a $5,000 grant from Cabela’s Outdoor Fund to fund fishing equipment and summer fishing programs.
The grant will allow for new rods, reels, tackle boxes and fishing gear for all of the council’s summer camps. Cabela’s store in Hazelwood, Mo., has also donated 100 new rods and reels to support Cub Scout fishing programs in the region.
Fishing continues to grow in the Boy Scouts of America and has long been a popular activity in Scouting. Cabela’s generous gift will help hundreds of Scouts learn more about this popular hobby. Similarly, youth will continue to benefit from the values and character-building elements that come from a fun outdoor Scouting program.
