Pack 205 is a 100% volunteer organization, so we rely heavily on fundraising to support the activities we plan for the kids. In an effort to balance the fun and educational activities we plan throughout the year against the necessary costs, we typically hold two fundraisers a year. We participate in the BSA popcorn sales as well as hold our own pancake breakfast.
In the Fall, Pack 205 participates in the BSA popcorn fundraiser. The money we raise goes towards activities such as camping and craft supplies. In the past, we were able to purchase a new pinewood derby track from fundraising activities. For safety purposes, we discourage any unsupervised door-to-door sales; and rely more on friends and family.
The easiest way to sell popcorn is to set up an online account, have advertise your own personal link through social media. Your friends and family can order popcorn online, and have it shipped to them directly.
As winter approaches, we shift our focus into Pancake Breakfast ticket sales. Guests are treated to pancakes, sausage, orange juice and coffee while being served by the Scouts. Scouts receive tickets to sell, and we love to see guests of all ages attend.
