    Kid Rock helps out boy scouts after camping equipment stolen

    http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...,1542100.story

    Troop leaders discovered last week that someone had taken a $5,600 trailer parked behind Tuskawilla Presbyterian Church. The troop had bought the trailer in March after seven years of fundraising.

    Also stolen was $4,000 in camping gear stored in the trailer. The heist jeopardized a summer camping trip to Tennessee

    I will cut them a check for the difference and hopefully will allow the boys to make their trip," Kid Rock wrote in an e-mail.

    Others chipped in with smaller donations and offers to lend or donate used tents and trailers to help the cause, said Tom Daly, the church's liaison to the troop.

    "Nothing short of miraculous," Daly, 53, said of the response. "People's hearts were in the right place. The boys won't be denied their trip."

    Still, Scouts aren't keen on handouts. Already the troop is hatching community-service projects to rake leaves and spread mulch as a way to repay strangers' kindness.

    "A Scout earns his way," said Bill Stott, 43, Troop 631 Scoutmaster. "The community is giving to us, so we want to give back to the community."

    Same here.

    I am glad Kid Rock and the community donated money and items to help get these young men replacement things, who worked hard to get that trailer and camping equipment.
