Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday – there is no shortage of places looking to help you spread your holiday cheer for sure. A new tradition asks you to consider supporting charitable organizations, especially Scouting, on #GivingTuesday.

OK – not pulling any punches here, Scouting really needs your help. While our Friends of Scouting program does a great job, we need help year round to deliver the promise. Please consider remembering the BSA on Tuesday for everything we have been able to do in the past. Your donations really do matter – and you can even donate ONLINE quickly and easily. Likewise, we do lose a small portion of the donations to credit card processing fees, so if you would prefer to mail a check to the Council offices below, please do so. Don’t forget to indicate “Fox River District” on your donation to help us meet OUR FOS goals as well!

Even if you don’t have anything additional that you can donate, as you do your online shopping with Amazon this year over the next few days, don’t forget to SMILE! The AmazonSmile program helps support Scouting through a small charitable donation (1/2 of 1%) from Amazon for every purchase you make on your Amazon account. But you have to sign up first, and remember to start your shopping at It won’t cost you a thing, but all of those pennies, nickels and quarters can really add up quickly and help our Three Harbors Council!
