TOWN OF CHENANGO (WBNG) — The Baden Powell Council, a Boy Scout council in the Southern Tier, is doing its part to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The council has started a “Stop the Spread” patch set, a set council Scout executive Matthew Bull said is one of the first sets in the nation.

The set were started to help offset costs of programs that had to be canceled due to COVID-19, but for Bull, the patches represent something more.

“The motto of the BSA is “Be Prepared,” and we thought this was a great way to spread that message to always wear a mask, stay safe,” Bull said.

The patches went live on the council’s website, with orders coming in from all over the nation, and even Canada. Bull said as of Wednesday, the council has just 30 patches remaining.
