LAUNCH AN EAGLE 

Annual Giving Campaign
Topping the charts are Troops 65, 74, 120, 212 and the LB East Stake. Many thanks to their leaders and parents for supporting youth development in the greater Long Beach area. If you haven't given this year, you can still give online or from your phone. Easy, safe, and convenient.

Without state, federal, or BSA funding, your donations are important and make a big difference.
