Scouts and community partners collected over 4,000 middle school library books throughout the 16 county territory of the Council. Books were collected and brought to the Council Service Center. A donated truck from UPS Freight picked up the collected books that were sent to North Carolina where the local East Carolina Boy Scout Council will distribute the books collected to those schools that lost their libraries.
The Sequoyah Council was one of three councils in our region that participated in Hurricane Disaster Library Relief Project, that collected more than 15,000 books for Jacksonville, Trenton, New Bern, Morehead City and Kinston in Eastern North Carolina.
Thanks to the support of the community, The Sequoyah Council exceeded its goal of 3,000 books to help middle school students/children devastated by Hurricane Florence in eastern North Carolina. Forty-six schools lost thousands of library books from water damage or mold growth. Some schools were closed for up to 7 weeks that affected 58,000 students and their families.
The Sequoyah Council would like to thank our Scouting families, Washington County Tennessee Friends of the Library and our community for their support in this worthwhile project
One of the country’s first Boy Scouts of America programs, the Sequoyah Council was founded in 1931. Each year, we serve more than 5,800 youth and adults throughout a 16-county service area in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.
Scouting is designed to make you more resourceful, and the outdoor experience provides adventures that foster self-sufficiency. As you navigate obstacles that may include extreme weather, difficult terrain and dealing with nature’s unexpected challenges, you learn the importance of strong leadership, communication and teamwork. Learning by doing is a hallmark of outdoor education, and Scouting provides a lifetime of memories and lessons learned.
For nearly 110 years, the Boy Scouts of America has helped shape future leaders by providing a program for young people that builds character, promotes good citizenship and develops personal fitness. We empower youth to make the right choices, conquer challenges and understand the importance of personal responsibility.
The Boy Scouts of America relies on dedicated volunteers to promote its mission of preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Today, nearly 1.2 million adults provide leadership and mentoring to Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers.
Friends of Scouting is the Sequoyah Council’s largest source of funding.
The annual giving campaign helps ensure high-quality Scouting programs for every youth. Accounting for 54 percent of funding each year, the campaign is vital to our Council’s success.
