Spring Fundraiser

First Aid Kit Sale (optional)

The PA Dutch Council is sponsoring a Spring First Aid Kit sale again this year, and we are very thankful that Erin (Gage's Mom) will be our Unit Fundraising Champion for this program. As a reminder, the Spring sale is completely optional (Popcorn in the Fall is our required Fundraiser) but many scouts choose to participate to help to fill their Scout Account to pay for Summer Camp.

First Aid Kits and Pack 44:

  • Spring Fundraiser that helps Scouts pay for camp or other Scouting activities

  • Risk Free - Scouts take orders, collect payment, and submit one check to their unit

  • Cost of kits range from $15 to $120, units keep 30% commission of the total amount sold

  • Easy ways to sell first aid kits - family, friends, social media, or at local businesses

  • Timeline for selling First Aid Kits is February 28th through March 25th

  • Additional Sales Sheets are available here, and the list of what is in each kit is available here

Important Dates:

  • February 28th, 2022 First Aid Kit Sale Begins

  • March 25th, 2022 First Aid Kit Sale Ends
