Boy Scouts trailer

Chino Hills Boy Scout Troop 220’s trailer was stolen from where it is stored at the Chino Airport on Sept. 4 and ditched in front of an elementary school in Perris with $3,000 worth of camping equipment taken.

Nandar Mulqueen of Troop 220 said the trailer has been stolen twice before and the troop is trying to find a more secure location 

Mrs. Mulqueen is asking the community for donations to help replace the camping gear.

The troop committee is working to come up with a fundraising event the boys can organize around COVID-19 restrictions, she said.

The troop was devastated to learn about the theft but relieved the next day when they learned that damage was minimal and not everything was removed, she said.

Parents recently established a non-profit charter organization called “Twelve Points Foundation” when it lost its charter with the Chino Valley Lions Club last year, she said.

“We didn’t want to lose the troop so we created the foundation to make scouting affordable and to help with programs like summer camps,” she said. Eventually, the foundation will expand its support to other scouting organizations.

She said Troop 220 is strong and committed despite the pandemic and meets through Zoom every Tuesday.

Donations for the stolen equipment may be made using PayPal by visiting pay pal.me/twelveptsfoundation. 

Checks may be made payable to Twelve Points Foundation with “Troop Equipment” on the memo line and mailed to: Twelve Points Foundation, P.O. Box 1257, Chino Hills, CA 91709.
