2020 Wreath Sales are Underway

posted Aug 12, 2019, 7:48 AM by Pack 1 Minneapolis Cub Scouts   [ updated Sep 27, 2020, 9:04 AM ]

Welcome to the 2020 sales season! Our Wreath Sale is our only fundraiser of the year. We would like every Scout to sell at least $150 worth of items. Sales incentives include free Fall Camp and Spring Camp attendance for Scouts and parents, as well as a gift card for the Scout Store at Basecamp. With Covid 19 safety concerns in mind, we have developed a contact-free sales plan for this unique year.

 

Following is a link to a sales flyer template you can download, edit, and print out to distribute to your neighbors. We recommend distributing the flyer to the homes of only people you know. 


Click the link below to get started. You may need to download and open the flyer template with a recent Acrobat reader to edit/customize it.

You will want to customize the flyer template by adding your Scout's first name and last name or first-initial-of-last name and your phone number or email address. Your customers will include your Scout’s name on their online order form, so a name must be provided to ensure that your Scout gets credit for the sale. 


If you are not comfortable putting your Scout’s name on the flyer, you could instead use a code name/word – just be sure to let us know what it is, so we can match up your Scout’s orders up correctly. Adding a photo of your Scout to the flyer is optional; do so only if you are comfortable with that.

 

You can also send out a link to the ordering site in an email. Personalizing the email is a nice touch. The following link leads to the Square website from which your customers will order and pay for their wreath, garland, spruce tops, door swag, centerpiece and/or wild rice. The flyer includes directions for
