Special Fall Giving Campaign 2020
Due to the circumstances of COVID-19, the Aloha Council will not present a Distinguished Citizen Award in 2020.
However, the 110-year old Aloha Council, whose geographic territory stretches from throughout the Hawaiian Island chain and through the South Pacific, continues to deliver the world’s most recognizable youth development and leadership program.
In its place, however, we are running a Special Fall Giving Campaign, where 100% of your donation goes directly to our Hawaii-Pacific Scouting program. All donations stay within the Aloha Council for the benefit of island Scouting.
In this unusual and extraordinary year, we ask for your continued financial support of this important community program. With the help and commitment of friends like you, the Scouting program will continue for another century in Hawaii—helping boys and girls on their path to becoming leaders of tomorrow.
