Donor Awareness Patch

Level:Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts

For a number of years, BSA has offered the Donor Awareness Patch to Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. It is worn on the right pocket of the uniform as a temporary emblem. BSA has reduced their emphasis on this program, but has not discontinued it completely. The patch is still being produced, but some Scout Shops™ may not routinely stock the patch. To avoid disappointing Scouts, CHECK FIRST to see if any are available in your area before promoting this program and patch. Of course, promoting Donor Awareness is still a valid project for Scouts, and can be done, even without the opportunity to get this patch.

Donor Awareness Patch requirements

There are NO formal requirements for this patch. Each unit establishes the procedure for awarding the patch, No. 5152. Usually, a Donor Awareness patch is presented to a Scout the first time he succeeds in recruiting an adult family member, friend, relative, or other acquaintance as an organ donor, and to fill out and carry an organ donor card.
