Lend a hand to members of our Scouting family affected by recent tornadoes

A Scout is Helpful, and the folks in Texas and Oklahoma whose lives were uprooted by recent tornadoes need our help.

Thousands of people, including Scouts and Scouters, have been affected by these disasters. Scouting professionals and volunteers are doing what they can to return some normalcy to these Scouting families — a process that could take months or years.

Scouting sources on the ground say that cash is what is needed most right now. So please consider supporting our councils and members directly by clicking this link and making a contribution. The funds will go to helping those councils affected by the storms, and you may designate where you want your money to go.

Other places where your support is welcome are the OK Strong Disaster Relief FundAmerican Red Cross, and Salvation Army. 

Thanks for always remembering that we are one Scouting family, and when someone in our family falls down, we’re all there to pick him up.
