Heartland District News
Friends of Scouting (Family Friends of Scouting (F.O.S.) 2017)
Is there an event or evening where a family presentation could be made in your local community or unit? Please look at your calendars in April and let us know at our next Roundtable meeting and we will make it happen for your local unit. Our dedicated chairperson is currently coordinating our Family Friends of Scouting Campaign this year for the Heartland District. They have done a great job working with our local units in the past for the Heartland District. Currently, it costs the Piedmont Council approximately $175 per youth to run the program. The clear majority of this funding comes from the Friends of Scouting Campaign. For as little as $15 per month, you can sponsor one scout and make a difference in the lives of youth in your community. Many of you have already given your time, talent, and treasure to support Scouting and for that, I would like to personally thank you. If your unit has not selected a date for your presentation, please contact your District Executive. It is our goal to give all families in the Heartland District an opportunity to give to the Friends of Scouting Campaign and learn how their individual financial donations help deliver the program in their local community.
