The Boy Scouts seek funding to help with programming.
Sydni Winkler, District Executive for the Black Swamp Boy Scouts of America echoed the sentiments of many of the other nonprofit directors. Unfortunately COVID-19 stopped a lot of their fundraising right in its tracks. She said they’re normally successful, “Friends of Scouting” campaign was not as successful in years past. Because of COVID-19, Boy Scout troops had difficulty meeting, so reaching out to families and community members for pledges was difficult.
 
However, she said they are trying to be creative by coming up with new and fun ways to obtain donations. She said they also produced a successful video to help boost fundraising.
 
She would like to invite the community to a pulled pork dinner fundraiser on September 25th at 3 PM at their office at 750 W. Robb Avenue Lima, Ohio with dinners provided by Fat Kid Barbecue. Tickets are still available.
