Assuming there are no government directives otherwise, we will be delivering all mulch orders this Saturday, March 28th and Sunday March 29th (if necessary).

We would like to remind you of a few things regarding the delivery process:

  1. Due to insurance and safety reasons, we cannot deliver your mulch order ANYWHERE off your driveway (this includes back yards, flower beds, etc.).  The delivery location must be visible from the street.
  2. We cannot deliver around or between vehicles, so if your delivery point is behind where you normally park your vehicle, you need to make sure your car is not in the way and that there is a clear path all the way to your vehicle.  If there is anything in the way, we will leave the mulch in a more accessible location of our choosing.
  3. If you have requested the mulch spreading service, you will be contacted next week to schedule a time to spread the mulch.  We have thousands of bags of mulch to deliver, so we WILL NOT be spreading any of it this weekend.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we also have very specific safety requirements to protect both you and our delivery crew:

  1. Please DO NOT approach our delivery crew members.  If you must interact with them, please maintain a distance of at least 10 feet.  For your safety and theirs, we need to be able to drop your mulch order and leave the area as quickly as possible to minimize any chance of infection.
  2. Please DO NOT offer any snacks, tips or any other items to the delivery crew.  Our crew will be instructed not to accept them for their own safety.

If you're curious about where the money from your mulch order goes, it costs our Troop approxmately $450 per year per Scout for our annual activities and that is likely to increase this year.  We also use the money to supplement the cost of our more expensive activities, entrance fees, campsite costs and high adventure trips.  A tremendous amount of work goes on before, during and after the mulch orders are delivered to make all of this happen and it is only through your generous orders that we are able to do these things with the boys of our Troop.  Your contribution DOES make a difference in the lives of these boys.

As always the boys, parents and leaders of BSA Troop 800 thank you for your ongoing support.
