$$ FUNDRAISING AND SCOUT ACCOUNTS $$
There is some confusion within our units about the use of Scout Accounts
and how to manage the funds of each individual Scout.
Here are some helpful links and documents to help clear the air
in regards to money and making sure that we do not violate any IRS Rules.

Service Hours for JTE Scores
Has your Unit completed any service projects during the Spring, Summer, or this Fall?
Clean-up projects? Scouting for Food? Charter Organization work? Community work?
A service project is a special Good Turn that puts Scout spirit into action.
Some Good Turns are big—saving a life, helping out after floods or other disasters,
recycling community trash, working on conservation projects.
But Good Turns are often small, thoughtful acts—helping a child cross a busy street,
going to the store for an elderly neighbor, cutting back brush that is blocking a sign,
doing something special for a brother or sister, or welcoming a new student to your school.
Anyone can get involved in a Good Turn. If you would like to participate in a service project
to benefit your community, contact Walt Winkler.
Don't forget to enter/claim those worked service hours here:
This helps everyone's JTE score and shows how
the Boy Scouts are giving back to their communities.
