Friends of Scouting – Consider a Donation

The Chickasaw Council is asking for donations to the Friends of Scouting program to help support the cost of the Scouting program, Camporees, summer camps, and providing Scouting to those who cannot afford it. They are offering a Centennial Award program to Troops that meet certain criteria, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Council. See the attached link to make a donation online ($10 minimum) that is credited to our Troop toward the award goals, and view a video about the Friends of Scouting Campaign:
