Troop 114 has three annual (and ongoing) fundraisers that we offer. Unlike Cub Scouting, the Troop itself has little expense, all of which is covered in annual dues. Fundraising is optional, and proceeds fund individual Scouts travels, equipment, expenses, and adventures.
Denver Area Council Popcorn Sale - Scouts can sell Trail's End popcorn door to door, to neighbors, teachers, co-workers or at Troop 114 booths in front of stores during the selling period. Orders are taken along with payment, and product is delivered in early November. Commission is roughly 32% of sales amount, and the sale runs annually early in the Fall.
Sherwood Forest Farms Holiday Greens Sale - Scouts may also sell wreaths, garlands, and other holiday greenery from Sherwood Forest Farms in late fall. Orders are taken with payment during October, with product usually arriving in time for Thanksgiving. Proceeds are roughly 33% of sales, depending on items sold.
King Soopers & Safeway Reloadable Gift Cards - The greatest fundraiser ever! Purchase a reloadable King Soopers & Safeway gift card from the Troop 114 treasurer for as little as $25. You earn 5% back for every amount reloaded onto the card and spent at King Soopers or Safeway. Simply estimate the price of your groceries, load the card before ringing them up, and use it to pay for them. Also works for gas! No limit to your "fleet" of cards, give them to grandparents, family, friends, neighbors and receive 5% of their grocery amounts too! Check your balance by clicking the icon to the right or going to www.gcbalance.com (King Soopers Only).
