First Aid Kit fundraiser forms DUE Jan. 16th!

Hello, everyone:

Thanks for participating in the First Aid Kit sale!

Just a reminder, first aid kit order forms and money are due to Katie at the Pinewood Derby Pack meeting, on January 16th Please make sure to collect all monies due before that time.  Remember, checks need to be made out to "BSA Pack 310." 


  • Make sure to check off "cash" or "check" next to each person's name and confirm payment is correct.
  • Fill out the total due (right side of page) and the total number of items (bottom of page) columns.
We will probably do one more show & sell before the end of January - Katie will send an email once she has confirmation.

Remember, your Scout earns money in his Scout account that he can use to pay for Scouting and camping supplies & fees.  It's a great way to pay your son's way in Scouting, and to support the Pack!

Thank you!

First Aid Kit Fundraiser!

Hello Pack 310 Families!

We are launching our exciting new fundraiser - Right Response First Aid Kits!

Order forms have been distributed to your den leaders and you should receive them at your next den meeting, or pack event (or sooner - just ask your den leader!)

The Fundraiser will run from now until the January Pack meeting.  The boys will be able to sell through taking paper orders AND through doing fun Show & Sell outings.
(If people want these first aid kits for Xmas, let Mrs. Emery know before the first week of December, and we can place an early order.)
Our goal is to sell the kits and help the boys raise the money they need to fund their scouting activities.
This year’s commission structure: 25% goes into the boys’ personal scout accounts and 25% goes back to the pack

Scout Sales Goal = $600
25% of that: $150 in your personal scout account!!!

The Scout account can be used to reimburse your boy for Scouting activities and equipment (such as uniforms, belt buckles, Pinewood Derby cars, items from the Cub Scout store, camping supplies, registration fees, etc).  
Please remember to save your receipts!  Once the sale is over, Mrs. Emery will let you know how much your son has in his account, and will send out a reimbursement form to turn in to Mrs. Alcalde.

The Top Seller in Pack 310 will earn a $30 gift certificate to Tom’s Toys!!
The 2nd Place Seller in Pack 310 will earn a $25 gift certificate to Target!!
The 3rd Place Seller in Pack 310 will earn a $20 gift certificate to GameStop!!

Let's start selling - and have fun!!
