Maria Raffucci-Cooper is no stranger to the busy lifestyle that comes with volunteering for the BSA and being a full-time registered nurse. As a dedicated leader in the National Capital Area Council, she has served in positions at the unit, district, and council levels. She currently serves as a Crew Adviser for Crew 1853 and a council trainer in the NYLT and Woodbadge programs. She also volunteers in the community by making regular food deliveries from a local food shelter to community members in need.
Maria believes everyone should take basic first aid skills. As a result, she has made herself available to teach First Aid/CPR/AED and Wilderness First Aid to numerous groups, including Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of America, and other volunteer organizations in the community. Maria is a Brotherhood Member of the Order of the Arrow and has received several Scouting recognitions, including the District Award of Merit.
Maria and her husband are the proud parents of three boys. Two are Eagle Scouts and one other working on his Eagle Award. She is extremely proud of all their accomplishments and credits the Scouting program with their success in life.
