Troop 48 - Holiday Greenery Fundraiser

Posted on Wed, Sep 15, 2021

Mrs. Toni Nygren kicked off our Greenery Fundraiser last night. This email has all of the information about the greenery fundraiser, so you can refer to it for any questions you have. If you were not at last night’s meeting, please read this email carefully, and you can get your greenery packet from Mrs. Kim Ridenhour at next week’s troop meeting.

 

A few things I forgot to mention:

Scouts will earn 60% of the troop’s profit for his sales in his Scout Bucks account. This is a great way to build up your Scout Bucks account to pay for your future Scouting activities.

 

Please collect the money due when the order is taken. All checks should be made payable to “Troop 48”.

 

Remember orders and money are due 10/19

 

 

Troop 48 Holiday Greenery fundraising packets Information:

 

It is time for our annual Troop 48 Holiday Greenery fundraiser! We are selling fresh evergreen wreaths, centerpieces, table-top trees and garlands from Mickman Brothers. The products are high quality and include “Greenzit Treatment”, which help preserve the greenery and keep it fresh longer. Scouts will earn 60% of the troop’s profit for his sales in his Scout Bucks account. This is a great way to build up your Scout Bucks account to pay for your future Scouting activities.

 

There are two types of greenery products we are selling – ones we will deliver and ones that are delivered directly to the buyer by FedEx. The ones delivered by FedEx are called “Holiday Gift Products”.

 

The Holiday Gift Products have higher prices because of the FedEx delivery charges and prices are located on the back of the fundraising packet envelope and should be entered on the back of the fundraising packet envelope. For each Holiday Gift Product item purchased, the buyer needs to complete a Holiday Gift Order form, which they will provide the address where the gift will be sent, and they can fill out a message card that will be included with the gift. (So if one person buys three Holiday Gift Products, they would need to fill out three Holiday Gift Order forms.) The Holiday Gift Order forms are unique and cannot be copied. There is a customer receipt at the top you should fill out and tear off and give to the buyer. This receipt has the order number they will need if there if is any issue with the gift delivery. Each packet includes a Holiday Gift Order form, so please contact Toni Nygren if you need more forms. The Holiday Gift Products will be shipped directly to the buyer beginning Thanksgiving week.

 

Regular greenery orders (not Holiday Gift Products) should be entered on the front of the packet envelope. These products will be delivered mid-November to the Faith Presbyterian church garage. Once we know the exact delivery date, Mrs. Nygren will send out pick up information. You will then deliver the products to your customers.

 

**Please note that this year we are not selling any sprays or large 36” wreaths other than the 36” Classic wreath to minimize the amount of inventory we have left over.

 

If you sell in person, please wear your Scout uniform, and practice safety by wearing a mask, social distancing, using hand sanitizer and having an adult or buddy accompany you. Please be respectful of city/neighborhood policies on if door-to-door selling is permitted or not.

 

Collect the money due when the order is taken. All checks should be made payable to “Troop 48”. It would be best if you have collected cash to please convert it to a check or money order before turning in your order money.

The due date to turn in your order envelope, completed Holiday Gift Product order forms, and money is October 19. Please be sure to put your name on your fundraising packet.

 

Lastly, will not be using the Gift It Forward Program this year as this method is more costly and offers significantly less profit than products ordered on the fundraising packet.

 

If you have any questions, please reach out to Toni Nygren at toninygren@hotmail.com .
