I confess that I don’t always agree with the social agenda of at&t, but I want to acknowledge them for this investment in today’s youth. As readers of this site know, I believe in the mission of the Boy Scouts of America program. The BSA, by building men, is also building honest, ethical, moral leaders of the future.
$350,000 is a large amount of money at the council level of BSA. As with all non-profit organizations, Boy Scouts of America runs on a tight budget, and is always looking for private and corporate donations to fill in the gaps, and this fills a big one.
Congratulations to the Atlanta Area Council, and a big THANK YOU at&t!
