Helping Ordinary Kids Become Extraordinary Adults
Papa John's International is a proud supporter of the Boy Scouts of America. Serving more than 36,000 youth and adults in 64 counties in Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and Tennessee, the Lincoln Heritage Council, Boy Scouts of America, works to foster the character development, worldwide citizenship and the moral, mental and physical fitness of young people. Our involvement further supports our mission to provide a "slice of education" to our young people.
In 2008, at their Good Scout Award Dinner, the Boy Scouts honored John and Annette Schnatter for their contribution to the Boy Scouts and the Louisville community. The event generated more than $255,000. These funds will have a positive impact to the KIDS Place, the Louisville Zoo, 21st Century Parks and the Boy Scouts of America.
According to Barry Oxley, Scout Executive, "The funds received from the Good Scout Award Dinner will assist with the services provided to all Scouts in the Lincoln Heritage Council." Training for adult leaders, Scouting for Food, Urban Scouting, Good Turn Project, camping programs and the annual Scout-O-Rama on the infield of Churchill Downs are but a few of the activities and services provided to the local youth. Scouting continues to be a values-driven program that makes a difference in the lives of young people.
