Our Cub Scouts Pack needed to get together some funds for trips and materials. We have 18 boys in the pack. We decided to sell chocolate bars for $1 a piece, a .50 profit for the pack.
We had 2 employees of the local market in our parent group and asked special permission to sell the bars in the front of the store for a few hours on a Saturday. The store agreed and even made overhead announcements to go over and see our boys, buy a bar and support the pack. This sold several cases of chocolate candy bars!
We also had a parent in charge of a local church’s Bingo night. They were allowed to sell the chocolate to Bingo players and staff, that sold 4 more cases! Our boys made posters for both selling events and sold bars to friends and family (each boy had a box of 40). With our event sales and the boys selling themselves we made about $700, a huge help for the pack!
