Script Sales

An ongoing fundraiser of Troop 858 is the selling of grocery store gift certificates for Schnucks Markets, Dierbergs Markets, and Shop ‘N Save. The troop receives 4% on the sales while the customers receive full value of the certificate. What this means is Troop 858 will receive $4 dollars for every $100 dollars of the certificates which are sold. This may not sound like much but it can add up fast. If only 25% of the families who have boys in the Troop were to buy $100 each week it would mean the Troop would receive approximately $60 each week. And that is for doing something that each family does anyway each week, EAT.

Certificates are available each week at the Troop meeting. You do not have to come to the meeting. Send a check, made out to Troop 858, with your Scout and have him see either Stephanie Gurlen. She will issue the certificates and your son can bring them home to you. If you wish, you may see Stephanie when you drop your son off for the meeting or pick him up. Certificates are available in multiple denominates.

Other certificates are available. We usually have on hand some McDonald booklets that are $5 each. Each booklet contains 5 – $1 certificates.

With the holidays coming up you may want to think about certificates from other stores as well. We can order certificates for Toys R Us, Best Buy, Gaffney’s Sports, The Gap, Home Depot, JC Penney, KB Toys, Kmart, Men’s Wearhouse, Office Max, Old Navy, Radio Shack, Sears, and others. A more extensive list is below.

If you wish certificates from any of these stores please plan in advance. Certificates are ordered on Friday for delivery the following Friday. The certificates would then be available for pick up at the meeting the following Thursday. This is a 2-week delay. Certificates would be available by special arrangement on the Friday we receive them.

The amount paid to the Troop is different from store to store however, any amount received by the Troop helps a good cause and all you have to do is shop! The more money raised through this program help reduce the need for other fundraisers to support the Troop.
