The annual Friends of Scouting campaign raises more than $130,000 from communities, businesses and families to support the Scouting Movement in Nashua Valley Council.
Scouting is growing and thriving in north-central Massachusetts. Careful management and a strong volunteer base have enabled Nashua Valley Council to continue to serve a large and diverse group of Scouts. We have accomplished this, in part, because our members and community leaders see the value of Scouting and have helped maintain a strong fundraising base. It is critical that we keep this trend going.
Scouting volunteers will visit units between January and May to share our successes from the past year, our needs for the future, and give all Scout families the opportunity to support Nashua Valley Council for the coming year. We know that you value Scouting, and we look forward to your support.
Families are the ones who see first-hand the benefit of Scouting for their child. A successful Friends of Scouting campaign will help ensure:
- Your unit leaders receive the training and problem-solving support they need to keep your Scouts safe, and make your unit successful.
- Your Scouts have access to best-in-class camping facilities, and exceptional program opportunities.
- The council can extend the benefits of the Scouting program to more local youth than ever before.
- The council is able to provide financial assistance to Scouts attending summer camp.
Strong family support helps local companies, organizations, and community leaders to recognize the importance of Scouting to youth in our communities, and make their own contributions to Nashua Valley Council.
Nashua Valley Council has been a leader in youth services in our communities. Your support will help ensure we can continue in our mission to deliver a values-based program of citizenship, character development, and physical fitness for our Scouts.
