Total Safety was pleased to present the Bay Area Council Boy Scouts of America with a check for $20,000 on March 31, 2011. Altogether, the Bay Area Scouts, with the help of The Texas Friends of Scouting, raised approximately $128,000 to assist the boys with building new facilities, purchasing uniforms for less privileged boys or those who want to be a Scout but can’t afford the entry fee and creating fun activities that instill values in the boys.

The HSE Director at Valero Texas City Refinery contacted Total Safety and asked if we would help the cause. In addition, Total Safety purchased two tables at the benefit breakfast and contacted some of our key business partners to buy a seat at one of the two purchased tables.

Donations were made by Amerex, BIC Alliance, Brown & Brown Law Firm, BW Technologies by Honeywell, Enterprise, MSA, Pinnacle Industries, Polarblast, Portagas, and Wong, Cabello, Lutsch, Rutherford & Brucceleri LLP.

Thanks to all of those who helped make this possible!

About the Boy Scouts of America

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

For nearly a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through nearly a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.
