Family Friends of Scouting
2021 Family FOS – Friends of Scouting Unit Campaigns
Each scouting unit is asked to conduct a Family FOS campaign to explain the services of the Longhorn Council to parents and leaders and to encourage them to participate in supporting the costs of the annual operation. Each Unit conducting and hitting their GOAL earns an incentive from the Council. This information and description is explained in detail further down on this page under the heading UNIT INCENTIVES.
The 2021 Family FOS brochure has been improved to help the unit campaigns reach their goals and help Scouting throughout the Longhorn Council.
The tri-fold design comes complete with helpful QR codes so you can:
- Donate securely online.
- Visit our summer camp pages.
- Visit your district IHUB pages to see what is new in your area.
