The organization says "this is a great example of American Scouts helping their fellow Scouts overseas in a time of need."
The BSA says there will be boys and girls helping from the Scouts BSA and Venturing programs.
The funds will go towards purchasing medicine, food, water, shelter supplies, and access to psychological support for young people and communities being affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
