CANDY BAR SALE (February 2010)

Troop 868 Home Page               Troop 868 in Action

One of the ways that Troop 868 scouts raise money to pay for troop equipment and finance our annual trip to summer camp is by selling candy bars at several merchants in the areas we serve.  Being visible in the community is also good publicity for the troop and our sister unit, Cub Scout Pack 868.  We typically pickup up an new member or two at every sale!

Scouts work in teams of two, supervised by a parent.  The boys typically work 3-hour shifts.  Selling to the public gives the boys good sales experience and also teaches them how to handle money and make change rapidly.  These are important skills to develop, so there are benefits beyond just raising money to support the unit.
