Friends of Scouting Update:
As of December 1st we have raised 97.8% of our $22,000 goal. If you've already made a pledge to this year's Friends of Scouting campaign we thank you and ask that you fulfill your pledge in a timely manner. With very few presentations left to be done we, the Oliver Perry District Executive and District Chair, would ask that anyone who has not yet made a contribution please consider doing so. Every dollar counts when it comes to investing in our youth!
It costs approximately $240 per scout to run the programs each year. And as many Scouters out there know, with the loss of $53,000 from the United Way, every dollar counts to maintaining the Scouting program in the Erie area. Donations through this campaign help support the program, maintain camp, and keep the cost of attending camp down.
If you missed your Pack or Troop's Friends of Scouting presentation, or just want to contribute to a great cause, please feel free to contact the French Creek Council office at 814-868-5571 to make your pledge. Questions can be directed to Jared Magoon at firstname.lastname@example.org
