Elk Grove Business Replaces Boy Scout’s Tip Jar After It Was Stolen

Boy Scout Troop 59 was working hard, selling Christmas trees in Elk Grove Sunday afternoon when they had their tip jar stolen with as much as $200 in it.

After a boy scout troop had its tip jar stolen, a local business is stepping up to help. Boy Scout Troop 59 was working hard, selling Christmas trees in Elk Grove Sunday afternoon when they had their tip jar stolen with as much as $200 in it. The boys were so busy, no one noticed until it was gone. Money that goes toward a summer trip to the Santa Clara Mountains.

Well, that didn’t sit right with the people eat Emerald Tattoo & Piercing took the troop a check for $200 to make up for what had happened. The tattoo parlor used the last of its winter charity fund on what owner Josh “Red” Hughes says is a worthy cause. Their customers help donate and they say it’s everybody helping to give back to the community.
