Patches with a Purpose
As a Scouting organization – we have a lot of patches. For our units, our council, and our lodge. As servant leaders of our local communities we have done some partnerships with Arizona groups to help raise money and awareness for their cause.
So please – pass this around to your Scouting friends. Anyone can purchase so add to your collection! (registered Wipala Wiki lodge members should be the only folks wearing these lodge flaps of course)
A Standard Lodge Flap. Awesome, but standard.

2020: Wigged Out (Breast Cancer Awareness)
In 2020, we partnered with a Phoenix local organization called Wigged Out. To date, we have given $2000 from this Patches with a Purpose fundraiser.
A little bit about Wigged Out:
At Wigged Out we know how emotionally, physically, and financially difficult it is to lose your hair. We’re here to help. Wigged Out provides financial assistance to people in Arizona who are in need of wigs and head coverings due to hair loss caused by a diagnosed medical condition, such as cancer, alopecia, blood and genetic disorders, anxiety, or complications from surgery or medications. Partnering with reputable wig boutiques across the greater Phoenix area, Wigged Out is able to ensure the people we help are able to receive new, high quality and well fitting wigs, that they are able to select, empowering them to feel more like themselves.
