In many crises, people quickly come out to lend a hand. With COVID-19, however, we are being told to keep our hands to ourselves. Yet for the Southern Sierra Council, the idea of doing nothing is not acceptable.



In accordance with local and state guidelines the Southern Sierra Council Trading Post will reopen on Monday, May 18, 2020.

  • It is recommended that you place your order in advance via phone (661) 325-9036 or email mary.castaneda@scouting.org. Payment will be collected when you pick up your order.
