Wreath Sale

It’s that time of the year again! The troop’s fundraiser has kicked off. This is the only fundraiser we have to fund the Troop’s activities. What is unique is that this fundraiser can fund your trips as well! We would like every scout to sell at least 12 wreaths.

Wreaths are $20 and stands are $2. These are Douglas Fir Wreaths grown in Pennsylvania, and delivered to us the day after Thanksgiving.

As usual, you can earn Scout Points for each wreath you sell. The point distribution is as follows:

Wreaths Points
1-24 2 / wreath
25+ 3 / wreath

Wreath sales from a family of Scouts/Scouters will be combined to establish point awards. However, each scout/scouter must report their sales individually to establish scout point distribution among family members.

Points can be redeemed for scouting trips. Scouts have been known to pay for summer camp from wreath sales! This is a busy time of year, but work now can result in a lot of free trips! The money from this fundraiser supports the troop and is mainly used to purchase equipment.

Selling Tips

Smile and be friendly. Be sure to explain that the wreath is a quality product; not only is the customer getting a beautiful holiday decoration but is supporting a good cause as well!

Personalize it! Let your customer know that the proceeds help the troop buy and maintain camping equipment and helps defray costs of scouting activities. (Tell them about the great trips we take!)

Please get cash or check in advance. Checks should be payable to "BSA Troop 152". Though, previous customers accustomed to pay on delivery are also acceptable.

Turning in Sales

Hooray! You've made a sale. When you go to turn in you sales, you need to put everything in an envelope with the following information:

Then, you can drop it all off on the wreath table at the weekly scout meeting. For example, the front of your envelope should look like this:
