What Is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
How Your Support Helps Scouting
Investing in the Boy Scouts of America creates opportunities for youth to gain memorable experiences and be instilled with values, principles, and skills that will help them develop into the future leaders of our nation. By contributing to Scouting, you will have a profound impact on America. More youth will experience the program that will further instill values and character in their moral fiber.
Support provided to local councils is used for scholarships, program supplies for youth activities, volunteer training, and camp and service center maintenance. Additionally, the National Service Center provides local councils with program materials, resources and support of the Scouting program. Here in the Ozark Trails Council, your gifts make Scouting possible for 8,000 youth across 31 counties in Southwest Missouri and Southeast Kansas. our Scouts enjoy programs in their local communities through the help of over 3,000 volunteers and take part in camping opportunities at places like Camp Arrowhead, Frank Childress Scout Reservation, and Cow Creek.
