Pumpkin Fest, Popcorn and Wreath Fundraisers
Pack 7 relies on fundraisers as the main source of funding for the yearly program.
In September, we kick off the yearly fundraising push with two fundraisers. At the North Smithfield Pumpkin Fest, Pack 7 runs two bouncy houses and sells hot dogs. In the same month, our yearly popcorn fundraiser gets popping. The funds earned here help to shape the year for our scouts!
In December, we hold an additional wreath sale fundraiser – which is always a popular option with our scouting families.
Every scout is expected to participate in fundraising efforts (our kindergarten Lions are exempted). Our registration cost is priced on the assumption that each scout is going to raise at least $100 individually. Popcorn and wreaths are sold directly to friends and family and through ‘show and sells’ at local businesses.
Remember – these fundraisers directly impact the program offerings. The more we raise, the more our scouts can do!
