Fundraising Friends of Scouting, please consider donating... FOS donations help pay for many worthwhile events and services. The Knox Trail Council invests approximately $255 per Scout each year. This amount reflects efforts to ensure all Scouts have camps to attend and a year-round Scouting program. Over the next 45 days, we will begin our Friends of Scouting Campaign. We have set a goal of $25 per family! Families will have several options to make their donation. Envelopes will be available during each meeting, and a link to Double Knot will be available. We do realize that not everyone might be able to give at this level. In that case we ask those families to give what they can afford, every amount helps!
Watch for more information in the coming weeks.
