Our troop has several different forms of fund raising. These fundraisers are used to collect funds to assist in keeping the troop running. This also helps get scouts to different scouting events, as well as maintain and replacing equipment as it becomes necessary.

Linn Mar High School Football Stadium Cleanup
This is done during the Fall football season. This also qualifies as a community project for the troop.

Swamp Fox Festival Food Sales
The Swamp Fox Festival happens in Early September, after Labor Day. This is a four day festival commemorating Frances Marion, the Swamp Fox as he was called by the British during the Revolutionary War.

Boy Scout Popcorn Sales
These sales begin in early October and continue until Thanksgiving. This gives the scouts an opportunity to earn money that they can use to go to Scout Camp. This is a big fundraiser for this area.
