Lone Scout Giving Tree Program
Nov 19 @ 12:00 am – Dec 14 @ 12:00 am

This year, we are again offering an opportunity for our Scout Leaders, Parents, and Community Friends to help local scouts who are in need of uniforms and other scouting needs, to purchase these items from the Scout Shop. This program is similar to the Angel Tree concept whereby we receive requests and tags are made and hung on the Lone Scout Giving Tree located at the Scout Service Center.  Last year, we had all requests filled by generous folks and we hope to have the same result this year!

The letter that is attached explains the entire program and more importantly, asks that you print off copies and/or email it to all your parents and leaders so they can nominate those in need from your Pack or Troop who are financially challenged and may not be able to have needed items.

Any questions should be directed to Heidi at 806-358-6500. This program starts on November 19 and ends on December 14 in order to get the items to the applicable person.

Thank you for your support!

Nov 19 @ 8:00 am – Nov 27 @ 12:00 am

“The Panhandle Gives” will take place during the week leading up to #GivingTuesday 2018. During nine days of enhanced charitable giving, between November 19 – November 27, 2018, we’re inviting the community to come together to give back to diverse causes. If we raise a minimum of $250, we can receive an additional donation from the Amarillo Area Foundation! The Panhandle Gives is a campaign to enhance charitable giving to support the nonprofits of the Texas Panhandle.
Stronger nonprofits=stronger communities. Stronger communities=improved quality of life for Texas Panhandle residents.
You can give directly to the Golden Spread Council through this program by clicking on the link below. We hope you will consider us as you give this year during this campaign.

2019 Camp Card Ordering Site- Orders due by Feb 1, 2019
Jan 8 @ 7:00 am – Feb 1 @ 5:00 pm

The 2019 Camp Card Fundraising Program is one of two fundraisers the Council offers to Scout Units.  This program has been extremely effective in getting funds your unit and scouts need to participate in many of the activities we offer and to supplement funds needed to purchase items such as Tents, Cookware, Chuck Boxes, Pinewood Derby Car Race Tracks, Uniforms needs etc.

Cards sell for just $5.00 each and the Unit keeps $2.50 for a 50 percent commission.  The only forms required to be completed are the Top Salesman Form and the top Council Cub Scout and Scouts BSA seller receives a $400.00 Visa Gift Card!

This is a Unit level  event however if your unit decides not to participate and your family does, please call the office to discuss the options as we want to offer everyone the opportunity to earn their way to Camp and other fun activities we offer during the year.

There is no cost upfront as your unit orders the amount of cards they want, they attend a Kickoff in early March to get briefed on selling techniques and to pick up the cards, they Scouts go out and sell, and the money ($2.50 per card) is sent to the Scout Service Center in late April.  All the exact dates are in the Leader’s Guide- please read through it for lots of other cool facts!

Please visit the Support Scouting Tab on the Council Website to see more details about the Camp Card Program along with several resources to help your sale.
