High Adventure Candy Fundraiser

Candy Blitz Cancelled

Everyone,

I called Old Monmouth Candies today to order our candy bars like they told me to do and they said that their shipment was delayed and they do NOT have any candy to give us.  They will not have them until next week some time.

Unfortunately that means we will not be blitzing this weekend due to the fact that I had a hard time getting the spots for this weekend and it is really getting too cold to go any later.  Plus, we are starting our wreath sale next week.  I am still going to get some for boys that want to sell them personally.  If you would like to order some for personal sales let me know.  Just keep in mind if you want them you will have to pay  $25 a box.  Again, I am sorry but don't know what else to do,

Troop 122 is holding a fundraiser for the High Adventure trip being held in 2014.  We will be selling candy bars and Peanut Brittle in front of stores, to neighbors, friends and family. All monies that are collected in front of stores will be put into one pot and divided evenly among the number of slots we have to sell at stores.  If you do one slot, you will receive one piece of the pie.  If you sell twice, you will get two pieces, and so on.  The store locations will be offered to the boys going to High Adventure first, but if there are extra spaces they will be offered to all boys.

Although this fundraiser has been set up for the High Adventure camp, anyone in the troop can participate to earn money for whichever camp they are going to.  All you need to do to participate is decide how many candy bars you want to sell and order them. Unfortunately, due to the fact that they are perishable, everyone will have to pay for them when ordering them.  I will be picking them up and they will be available for pick up on October 24th.  Attached is a list of what will be available.  As you can see by the attached flier the boys will make a 50% profit on anything they sell.  The retail amount is due when ordering.  Half of that will pay for the candy and the other half will go directly into the boys account for camp.  Since the bars are only $1.00, I would think they should be fairly easy to sell.  If you are interested in selling please fill out the order form and get it back to me by October 18th.

As of right now I ask that you only pick 2 time slots (see schedule below) so that everyone has a chance to get something they might want. Hit replay to all so we don’t have people picking the same locations. After I get back an email from everyone, you will be allowed to pick more time slots

When you send back an email for locations please include a cell phone number for someone who will be with you, if not your own, that way I can get in touch with you that day. Any problems that day my number is 732-977-7288 please call me. If you run low on candy feel free to call and I will get more to you GLADLY!

To order candy for personal sales, just put the number of cases next to the item on the price list and return it to me with the money.  You do not need to buy candy to blitz with, the troop will supply it.

If anyone has any questions you can call me at home 732-796-9144.

Thanks

A couple of rules to follow when selling in front of a store:

  • Wear your Class A uniform (people respect someone in a uniform)
  • No Chairs (all of you can stand for 3 hours-it looks nicer)
  • You must have a parent with you at all times
  • Please try to ask everyone you see if they “would like to support the scouts” (not just “do you want to buy candy”)
