Scouting for food 2013

By MrHeckendorn | October 11, 2013

It’s almost November, and you know what that means: Scouting For Food is here again. It’s Scouting’s most prominent community service activity, where packs and troops all around collect food to be distributed to families in need. Once again, Pack 72 will be covering various neighborhoods, distributing door hangers on November 2rd and picking up donated food and supplies on November 9th. Your den leaders will provide more information about the exact when and where. You can read more about the particulars of this year’s campaign in the documents linked below.

Popcorn Show and Sale

By MrHeckendorn | September 5, 2013

Hi Pack,

Like most packs and troops, Pack 72 participates in the annual popcorn
fundraiser. Scouts sell Trail’s End brand popcorn, to friends and family,
door-to-door sales, and at Show-and-Sell events, during the months of
September and October. A substantial portion (currently 37%) of total
proceeds flow to Pack 72. This income funds almost all pack activities
throughout the year. In addition, a portion of the money that comes back
into the pack is transferred to boys’ invididual cub accounts to help cover
their scouting-related expenses through the year. The amount
credited to cub accounts depends on the boy’s individual popcorn sale, and
the number of Show-and-Sell events in which he has participated.

We ask for every scout to sign-up for at least one Show and Sale event
using the signup genius link below.

Yours in Scouting,

Pack 72 leadership.
