Intake volunteers needed immediately to assist flood victims

The recent floods have left many residents in New Hampshire devastated both financially and emotionally. Over the next several weeks, the CAP offices in Rochester and Raymond will be working in conjunction with FEMA to assist those most impacted by the floods.

 

Both offices are in need of intake volunteers immediately to help clients with questions and filling out assistance request forms for flood relief. The offices will be open 12 hours a day, 8am-8pm, seven days a week for the next several weeks. Intake volunteers are needed to work four-hour shifts (8am-12noon, 12noon-4pm and 4pm-8pm). Two volunteers are needed per shift for each office. Orientation and on-site training will be provided. If interested in helping or if you need more information, please contact the appropriate office below. If you are able to provide your services, be sure to mention you are representatives of the Daniel Webster Council.

Beware of Solicitations by Groups Claiming to Support the BSA

Scouters and others have been receiving letters from various nonprofit organizations claiming to support the Boy Scouts of America and seeking contributions. Some of these groups refer to Scouting in their name: Save Our Scouts” or “Scouting Legal Defense Fund, and some do not. All of them claim to be supporting Scouting’s legal activities in some fashion, but none of them are authorized by the BSA to be seeking funds. Most important, no contributions to these groups go directly to Scouting. The Boy Scouts of America does not solicit funds in this manner, and you may be assured that no names or addresses are ever sold or given to anyone outside the organization. These groups generally use mailing lists purchased from commercial organizations that compile such lists from magazine subscriptions and other sources.

We regret the confusion and misdirection of contributions that these solicitations cause, and we are taking appropriate legal measures to deal with these parties. Under our federal Constitution these groups have the right to solicit funds and to express their support, but they do not have any right to mislead or confuse people.

Some of these organizations have provided support to the BSA through “friend of the court” briefs or published articles, but we would prefer that they did not seek to profit by these activities through soliciting funds in the name of Scouting. Their activities have resulted in confusion and frustration for many of the recipients of these solicitations.

If you wish to support Scouting directly, please make a contribution directly to the Daniel Webster Council, BSA.
