INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — An Indianapolis Boy Scout troop that had their tents and other camping equipment stolen from a truck can now replace the gear.
That's thanks to a couple from Indianapolis who offered to help Troop 494 purchase new tents, camping stoves and other items. Dr. Phil Farber said he and his wife Stephanie said they felt bad for the Scouts and were pleased to have the chance to help them out. This weekend, Troop 494 had decided to go out to a park. As two Scouts went to check the trailer where their gear was kept, they found that a dozen or so tents had been broken into among the items they had taken. The loss was projected to be at least $2,000. Troop leaders cancelled the camp, opting instead for a day-long Jamboree Saturday to be attended by the troop. Boy Scout chief Tom Olivier said he was delighted with the generosity and kindness of the couple calling it an amazing and highly appreciated present. If you're wondering, Farber said when he was a scout, too, and thought, "Wow, we can help them out," and they did.
