How to Celebrate Boy Scouts of America Month with Bass Pro Shops

Bass Pro Shops is hosting Boy Scouts of America Month at all U.S. locations this September. Throughout the month, Bass Pro Shops will promote Boy Scouts of America, offer merit badge classes, and provide opportunities to raise funds for Scouting projects. This is the eighth year Bass Pro Shops has recognized the Scouts with a month-long celebration.

Bass Pro Shops will offer customers the opportunity to donate to the Boy Scouts of America by rounding up their purchase total to the nearest dollar. At the end of the promotion, 50 percent of the money collected will be donated to the Boy Scouts of America National Council and 50 percent will be given to designated local councils. In addition, Bass Pro Shops will make a contribution for each donation made.
