Friends of Scouting (FOS) 2017
Northern Star Council ,like many organizations, has numerous income sources. Including a strong partnership with the United Way agencies throughout our council. NSC is one of the programs they choose to support and we are appreciative of their support.
In order for Northern Star Council to continue to maintain camps, deliver quality programs, provide youth and adult leadership training, and keep Scouting affordable to all families, we need our Scouting families and communities to invest in Scouting.
Every year we hold a FOS donation drive. Typically we ask each family to sit through a presentation and complete a pledge card. Last year we started a new tradition. Each Patrol is responsible for getting all the families in their Patrol to return their Pledge card by March 6th. If you cannot donate this year simply put "not at this time" on your card and return to the Patrol leader or our FOS Chair Kristi Albertini, firstname.lastname@example.org The key is to get all cards turned in by March 6th. Each patrol that gets 100% of their cards turned in by that date will receive a deluxe Pizza party or other event of their choosing valued up to $60 at their next Patrol Meeting.
So be on the lookout for the FOS card from your Scout, ask them to explain a little bit about the FOS program and please pledge accordingly. Thank you for supporting Scouting and Northern Star Council.
