Each year, the Laurel Highlands Council, Boy Scouts of America serves more than 29,000 youth in southwestern Pennsylvania. To manage the daily operations that enhance the delivery of services to these youth, the council maintains an annual operating budget of approximately $7.5 million. Funds must be identified to address current activities, grow new programs and serve an ever growing, diverse pool of youth from across the region. This year, we estimate it will take $150 to foster the mental, physical and moral values of one youth. We need your support and commitment to help us continue to develop bold new activities that attract and retain youth.
