Last Call - For Friends of Scouting (FOS) Pledge Cards and Donations

Posted on May 22 2017 - 9:44pm

There is still time to make a donation.  The donation box will be at the CoH on May 30th.

FOS is the financial campaign for the Mount Diablo Silverado Council (MDSC) and Meridian District. Both Council and District do so much to assist our troop - Troop Recharter, Eagle Scout advancement assistance, BSA member registration, Unit Liability Insurance, local camps for troop use and adult trainings. Troop dues do not cover these services. Our troop goal is 100% participation.
