Rudy Gonzalez – Scout Executive “We’ve been in a quiet phase for about a year and now are going public with it and so we’re inviting everybody in the community if they want to contribute $1.00 or a million dollars we need all that help we can get, it’s to help give the kids in the community an opportunity to be good people, be productive citizens and make a difference in the community.”

The campaign kicked off with events in Brownsville, Harlingen and McAllen with more than 600 people in attendance. Former scouts and community leaders have also shown interest in the project.
