Triangle Luminaria is dedicated to the collaboration and teamwork necessary to plan and execute effective Luminaria-based fundraisers and service projects for youth development organizations in southwest Wake County including the communities of Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Morrisville, Holly Springs, and Fuquay-Varina.
 
Currently 28 Girl Scout, Boy Scout and American Heritage Girls troops participate in the program. They distribute luminaria as a service project which also serves as a fund raiser. These distributions are individual troop projects which are supported by Triangle Luminaria. Triangle Luminaria consists of a volunteer Committee with past experience as adult scouting leaders. Since the project was started in 1973 by BSA troop 208, its success has depended on the voluntary cooperation of the troops with regard to the routes served and the general guidelines recommended by the Committee. Each troop submits the appropriate fund raising request forms to the proper Boy Scout and Girl Scout officials. This gives the troops approval to perform this project from their respective governing organizations. This is not a council or national project. It is a coordinated community effort consisting of individual troop projects.
