2020 Family FOS Virtual Campaign
Dear Scouting Family,
Over the last few weeks, many of our lives have become more hectic due to temporary closures of schools, businesses and other things we take for granted. While it can be discouraging that we are taking a temporary respite from Scouting, we want you to know that we are looking forward to “coming back” and will do so as soon as experts have given the green light to do so.
This respite in the Scouting program also puts a strain on the financial situation of the council. In the past, a Friends of Scouting representative has visited your unit and asked for your support of our annual Family Campaign. Due to many units having to cancel events because of COVID-19 pandemic, we may not be able to do in-person presentations at units. However, Pine Tree Council and the youth in our programs still need your support. Your tax-deductible contribution will help us continue to provide quality, character-building programs to our youth, and supports the operation of our 4 camps. Your donation is needed now, more than ever.
If you choose to make a donation, we have several donation levels for you to choose from
- Second Class-$150
- First Class-$225
If you have already contributed to this campaign we thank you.
Funds raised from the Friends of Scouting campaign stay within our council and enable us to provide full-time professionals and support staff to serve our units and to recruit new families to Scouting. These funds also enable us to make available membership recruitment materials for all units, provide leader training and maintain four council camps for all to enjoy; youth, volunteer leaders and families. While all registration and charter fees go to our National council, all donated funds given locally-stay locally.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the council or your District Family Friends of Scouting Chair. Together, we can help deliver the promise of the Scouting program.
