Scouts Continue Making Local Impact

The Service of Bringing Joy

Scouts and their families are providing Good Turns daily in the fight to flatten the curve and support their respective communities. The BSA’s proven track record of shaping young people into leaders of outstanding character is illustrated daily through their servant leadership responses to COVID-19.  Brothers, Mason and Ethan remind us that bringing joy in a time of crisis is an act of service!

Did You Know?

Did you know 520 Eagle Scouts graduated in the class of 2019.  Each Eagle Scout project comprises approximately 200 hours of peer to peer team leadership.  That’s 104,000 hours of service to the community last year in Eagle Scout projects alone!

Mason and Ethan are on their path to becoming Eagle Scouts, and CPC will be there every step of the way.

Do a Good Turn on Giving Tuesday

The Cascade Pacific Council (CPC) is participating in #GivingTuesdayNow (a global day of unity and philanthropy to take place on May 5, 2020) and inviting YOU to help us continue our mission by supporting Scouting locally, here in the Pacific Northwest. 

Join communities as they come together for this one-day campaign and help CPC continue our mission by providing critical funds.

How you can help: 

  • GIVE! On May 5, visit www.cpcbsa.org/donate and make a gift. You can even make a gift early, beginning as soon as now!
  • SPREAD THE WORD! Share the above link via email, social media and text and encourage others to join you.

While the CPC is fortunate to be able to participate in the newly announced #GivingTuesdayNow initiative, this does not replace our community or Camp4All fundraising initiatives. If you have already made a pledge to Scouting, please continue to fulfill that commitment while you consider a #GivingTuesdayNow special gift. Thank you for considering a donation as we work together today, to prepare our next generation of leaders for tomorrow.
