Some Long Island Boy Scouts are raising money to honor a fellow member who was killed by a suspected drunk driver.
Andrew McMorris died in September after an alleged drunk driver ran into members of Troop 161 as they hiked along a Manorville road. The boys want to name a building at Baiting Hollow Scout Camp in Calverton for the fallen 12-year-old troop member.
The 3,200-square-foot lodge will be able to house more than 40 Scouts when it's built. But the Scouts have to raise $100,000 to secure naming rights for the building.
Scouts say it's all about keeping McMorris' memory alive.
Donations can be made HERE.
