Ordering for our Annual Mulch Sale
is now CLOSED.

If you still want mulch, there may be a limited number of bags available for delivery or pickup on Saturday at each of the distribution sites.  Availability is not guaranteed and will be on a first-come first-served basis.  Extra bags will go fast, so you will need to be at your local distribution site by 8:00am Saturday to place your order for same-day delivery.

The distribution sites are as follows:

  • James River High School @ Athletic Field Parking Lot
  • Winfree Memorial Baptist Church @ 13617 Midlothian Tpk
  • The Chapel @ 3505 Old Hundred Rd S

We DO NOT spread mulch on the day of delivery.  Let me repeat this -- We DO NOT spread mulch on the day of delivery.  If you requested the mulch spreading service, you will be contacted next week to schedule this activity.

Kroger Card

Kroger's Community Rewards Program will donate a percentage of your in-store purchases to the charitable organization of your choice -- hopefully BSA Troop 800.  All you have to do to make this happen is link your Kroger Plus Shopper's Card to the Troop's account.  This costs you nothing.  Your spending is 100% confidential and this program DOES NOT affect your earnings toward fuel program discounts.  

Click here or on the Kroger Plus Shopper's Card above to learn more.

Please read the article below for news and information pertaining to Scouting BSA's recent Chapter 11 filing notice.

Locally, we know the following:

  • The Heart of Virginia Council of Scouting BSA is a completely separate financial entity and is not affected by national's filing.
  • Scouting activities in the Commonwealth will continue as normal unless and until we are told otherwise.

If you’re reading this, you have probably experienced the positive impact of Scouting.

And I’m guessing that – like me – you want Scouting to be around to serve kids in our communities for many years to come.

I’m hoping you also agree that it’s important that the BSA supports victims of past abuse in Scouting. Quite simply, it’s the right thing to do.
