Troop 161 Memorial and Support Fund

There are some things we cannot possibly Be Prepared for, but we can stand ready to respond when we are called. The pain and loss of the families of Troop 161  is beyond description, and we are all with them during this time,  the McMorris family  most of all.

As Eagle Scouts, we have pledged countless times to help others, and we find ourselves duty-bound to ask for your help for these Scouts now. As we grieve with them today, we also want them to have access to resources they need to provide counsel and continue to be able to lean on each other in the times to come. As we kneel and remember Andrew , so also do we stand with the boys, men, and families who will remember him best.

We ask that you join us in supporting them, and that we can help in some way to strengthen the bonds they share to aid them in their journey ahead.
