Fall is a great time to clean out closets and gather any unwanted clothing items. The more clothing collected, the more kids that can be helped. In Denver alone, there are thousands of kids living with physical and mental disabilities. One in every 800 children are born each year with Down Syndrome, three children out of 1,000 have Cerebral Palsy and one out of 150 children are autistic. The "Clear your Closet" clothing drive will help the district provide the opportunity for these kids to go fishing, earn merit badges, participate in the Pinewood Derby and go camping.
Denver Options is also helping this expansion effort with special needs Boy Scouts. After listening to families and troop leaders, Denver Options designed a charter Boy Scout troop for youth ages 11-18 years to help boys and their families experience scouting. This "Transition Troop Project" is the first of its kind at a national level.
