Providing community service and giving back to the communities in which we live is a core principle of Scouting. From now through the summer of 2014, the Cradle of Liberty Council is partnering with J.P. Mascaro & Sons and the American Red Cross to maximize participation in the Francesco A. Mascaro Memorial Blood Drive. Frank “The Chief” Mascaro spent his entire life giving back to the community. The Mascaro Family has organized a blood donation drive to help those in need and honor Frank’s memory.
The council has organized 11 blood drives in late August (a critical-need time for blood donations) to help assist in this effort. Scouts and their families are promoting these drives in their communities to raise awareness and recruit donors.
You’re invited to become a blood donor and help with this very important effort. You may sign up for one of our drives or, if you’d like to donate now, can’t make it in August or would like to go to a Red Cross drive closer to you, please visit colbsa.org/blooddrive and commit to being a donor.
