A Scout is Courteous

Courteous: polite, respectful, showing consideration

From a nonprofit's first greeting with Hartsook's Support Services to the capstone gift of an Integrated Fundraising Campaign™, showing consideration is what we do. Said Hudson Valley Council's Campaign Co-Chair, Jason Barlow. "With Hartsook's involvement, we never lacked support." Email [email protected] or call us at: (866) 630-8500..
