Friends of Scouting Update:
We're well on our way to our 2013 goal of $22,000. As of Tax Day we have reached 84% of our goal with several more presentations to go. 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.
For those that have yet to donate we would ask you to consider making a donation. 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
