A bankruptcy filing by national Boy Scouts organization isn’t impacting local units. W.D. Boyce Council Scout Executive Lee Shaw says the local organization, which covers LaSalle and thirteen other Central Illinois counties, is its own entity financially. The national group’s decision to file for bankruptcy comes amid a slew of sex abuse lawsuits – which some have said is an admission of guilt.
Shaw says the W.D. Boyce Council will continue moving forward with its program.
The council and local units are locally funded.
