Troop 501 participates currently in three fund raising activities that occur in the Spring and Fall of the year.
Pancake breakfast. This is the troops major fund raising effort to support troop related activities. The breakfast occurs in the spring (typically the first Saturday in May, from 7AM - 12PM) and is tied to St. Timothy's Spring blood drive.
Scouts can sign up to sell at high traffic locations such as the Jewel, Ace, or sell individually door-to-door. The sales schedule, once created, can be viewed on-line. Scouts that sell during the week will be rewarded at the weekly meeting with an assortment of candy bars.
Wreath & Popcorn Sales. During the fall the scouts have an opportunity to support the council and to also raise money for use in supporting scout program related expenses (monthly camping trips, summer camp, high adventure).
