26 boys went
There were 60 people total.
We shopped at Walmart.
Last activity of 2013.

First we all met at the scout hut to split into 3 groups and drove to Walmart.  Inside, each group was given 70 dollars and a list of children and what they wanted for Christmas.  The rule was that each group had to account for all costs including tax with that 70 dollars.  We bought each person on the list 3 or 4 clothing items and then the toy or game they asked for.

When all the shopping was done we headed across the street to Fuddruckers.  Fuddruckers supported us by giving a percentage back to us for troop funds.  At Fuddruckers the parents joined in.  We ordered food and played dirty Santa.  The rules were like normal dirty Santa but the gift you bought had to be scouting related.

After the meal Mr. Clark took the gifts back to the Salvation Army drop-off at the church.  If he had missed the drop-off he would have taken it directly to the Salvation Army.
