About Uniform Exchange

Donate, Purchase, or Receive an Experienced Uniform

If you're looking to purchase, donate, or receive a a good condition, used uniform - we can help. The goal of the Uniform Exchange is to see that every Scout has a uniform. If you cannot afford our donation suggestions, please let us know and we will take care of you!


You can purchase uniforms at the Leadership Center (6202 Bloomington Ave) on the second Thursday of the month from 3-5 p.m. or the third Thursday from 4-6 p.m.. Pick up a great, experienced uniform shirt, pants, or shorts far cheaper than a brand new one. Looking for Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, or Venturing items? We cover them all.

It's best to visit in person to try on your new uniform, but you can also email a request form and we'll do our best to find the perfect uniform for you! We'll find a way to get it to you (but it may take a bit longer).

There will be no uniform exchange night on December 17th, 2020


Bring your experienced uniform to the Leadership Center and we'll happily get it in the hands of a Scout who needs one! Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturers all need shirts, pants, and shorts, but they prefer up-to-date items without holes or stains.

Keep your t-shirts, sweatshirts, patches, and books along with the great memories from your days wearing the uniform!


Thanks to the generosity of our donors, families who cannot afford any portion of the cost of a uniform can receive one at no charge. Just let our volunteers know at exchange or on the uniform request form. Further documentation is not required.


Scouting for Uniforms is an annual drive held in July by Pilgrim Cleaners - a community minded business which also originated Coats for Kids. All of their locations collect and clean donated uniforms to replenish our uniform exchange. Since 2007, more than 3,400 uniforms have been re-purposed through this campaign.
