Survey Fundraiser: April 14th for Adults 18-65+

We Still Need Your Help!! We only have 90 people signed up. We need at least 100 to claim $1000 for this in person fundraiser. The survey is for adults only and requires you to show up in person. The survey will be at Acree Hall from 3:30-8:00 PM and it is administered by Various Views Marketing Research and the results will help P&G. However, you need only give 30 minutes of your time. We are asking each scout to recruit 5 adults for the survey. This will greatly help out the troop with purchasing equipment that we really need. We’re not asking for money but, something that you can give for free, your time. Pass the below link to others in your family and let’s get as many people signed up as possible to help. These fundraisers also help us keep our dues in perspective.
