The annual Friends of Scouting campaign is an opportunity for communities, businesses and families to support the Scouting Movement in the Northeast Illinois Council. A unit presentation allows parents and leaders understanding of the resources required to run the entire district and council calendar of events. It allows parents to make a suitable donation as they recognize the value Scouting offers their child.
During the months of January through April, each Pack, Troop, and Crew should schedule a "Family" Friends of Scouting presentation. This presentation explains to parents how our Council is financed and educates them about the programs, services, leader training, and camping facilities the council provides with their Friends of Scouting donation.
