Eagle Scouts of Troop 145
on behalf of Jane Sherman
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.

All funds will be distributed to Troop 161 via the Troop Committee for the primary  use for any counseling/training needs, with the remainder to be used at the discretion of the Troop Committee for the purpose of expanding or enhancing access to troop activities, and any other Scouting-related charitable needs. 
 
All gifts are generous, and humbly appreciated. If you are with an active Troop, please consider including the unit number and town in the comments.
