Friends of Scouting

Posted on Apr 28 2016 - 9:44pm


Thank you to all the Pack 788 families who returned a pledge envelope!

We would like to remind everyone that Friends of Scouting pledge cards are still being collected. 

At Pack 788, as with all packs in the council, we aim for 100% participation in the Friends of Scouting campaign, regardless of the pledged amount. If your family can pledge as little as $1.00, please do so. The sealed envelopes will be delivered to the council headquarters unopened, so no one in Pack 788 will be able to view the pledged amount.   

If your family has not returned your pledge, please return it to Tom Tyler. If you have not yet received your pledge card, they will be available at all pack events.

The purpose of the Friends of Scouting campaign is to ensure that the Heart of Virginia Council of the BSA has adequate funding to support each scout in the packs within the district. The cost to support one scout for one year is $250.00.
