Friends of Scouting
It is the mission, in part, of the Five Rivers Council to provide the opportunity to participate in Scouting programs to every young person who is eligible. However, in order to do so, we need to provide every aspect of program support, including funding. Take a look at the 2014 FOS Brochure!
Because of your gift in 2013
