Dear parents, alumni, and friends of Troop 370,
In case you missed my presentation at the December Court of Honor, I am leading the Friend of Scouting (FOS) campaign for Troop 370 this year. On behalf of the youth and volunteers of Northern Star Council, I am inviting you to make an investment in Scouting. Each dollar you invest will help send youth to camp, support urban Scouting, and provide our volunteer leaders with the tools and resources needed to ensure our youth benefit from a high quality program.
The cost of Scouting includes many things we don’t see or think about such as leadership training, insurance, reference publications, camping equipment, camp promotion, recognitions, administration needs, utilities, postage, newsletters, etc.
Your tax-deductible contribution helps our children develop leadership skills, values, and positive character traits that our boys need to be successful in life.
I’ve been handing out pledge cards at the past several Monday meetings, but in case I haven’t been able to connect with you, please let me know and I’ll be sure to send you one. Please join the other parents, alumni, and friends of Troop 370 that have already turned in there pledges. Many of these pledges can be matched with corporate matching programs. Let me know if I can investigate for you.
Thanks for making an investment in scouting. Bob Reitz firstname.lastname@example.org
