What the Entire Pack is "Doing" Together...

Popcorn.. Get your yummy scout Popcorn!!!

posted Oct 17, 2016, 6:30 PM by Kerry Gallman

It's that time of year for scouts nation wide come to your neighborhood, flash those adorable smiles and raise funds for their scouting unit. Pack 15 is doing the same and you can help!!!! Pack 15 scouts have been out and about in the community selling popcorn and learning valuable character skills while doing so!!! Our shy Lions, Tiger and Wolves learn from our mighty Bears and Webelos, that popcorn sales teaches them to be proud of their unit, public speaking skills and developing their relationships in the community. They also learn the power of perseverance; that they can do anything they work hard for!!! So when you see a Pack 15 scout, even if you give him a small donation, remember that you are helping to create a strong young man full of character and skills!!! Thank you for your support of scouting through our Popcorn program!!!

Niagara Chocolate fundraising sale

posted Jun 20, 2016, 2:59 PM by Kerry Gallman   [ updated Jun 22, 2016, 9:52 AM by Wappingers Pack 15 ]

Niagara Chocolate sales are a great opportunity for your scout to build up his scout fund that can be used towards scouting expenses such as registration and other pack/scouting events. A scout must earn his way! Families in the past have been able to fully covered the scout registration by selling chocolates. We will love for all of our scouts to participate. 

How it works:
One case has 50 chocolate bars and cost $50.00. Cost of a box is $25.00 and the other $25.00 goes to the scouts’ account. These are very delicious chocolates, cases come in variety of 5 flavors (10 bars of each) Crisped Rice, Peanut Butter, Mint Cookie, Caramel and Toasted Almond. 

How to Buy:
Cases are pre-ordered and pre-paid. Each case is $50 and when your scouts sells, you reimburse yourself. As described above, scout earns $25.00 towards his scout fund as soon as a box is purchased. 1 box =$25, 2 box =$50 and so on.
2.9% fee is charged for online payments. If paid online, scout will receive $25.00 - $1.45 PayPal fee\$23.55 per box.

To participate, please send your scouts name and number of cases to order to Norbin Cruz, Chairman @ By JUNE 27TH! (Next Monday).

Cash\Checks or Credit Cards!!! Yes, we are now accepting electronic payments via PayPal! Click below to place your order!

Cash\check - please write a check to “Cubscout Pack 3015” and give it to your Den Leader or Treasurer (Ed Gaklik) no later than June 30th.

Why the rush?… for starters we are behind. Second, I want to order the chocolate by Friday July 1st. They take approximately two weeks to be delivered. I’m going to handle the ordering while out of the country vacationing and want to make sure we have them shortly after I return - second week in July.

PS - Additional to the individual sales, we will be setting up a Go-N-Sale at Galleria July 16th and 17th. All funds collect for this event will be used to help lower the registration cost for 2016-2017 for all Scouts. Please make sure you child is able to attend. More information will be send out the week on July 11th. Any questions please contact your Den Leader or myself at
