Former Saints coach helps Boy Scouts raise funds

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Raising funds for Boy Scouts was on the menu downtown Tuesday.  

The Istrouma Area Council serves Boy Scouts in 13 parishes, but they need support.

People in the business community sat down to lunch to raise money and hear from an old scout.

"I've always felt like being an Eagle Scout, starting in Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts - whole thing, I know inside it's helped me be a better person and better coach," said former Saints Head Coach Jim Mora.

Mora was an Eagle Scout in 1950.  He was given the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award.
