We need to hear from you –

Good Afternoon,

I have heard from a few families and their request totals less than half of the books available.  Please let me know if you are interested this individual scout specific fundraiser.

This is an individual fundraiser.  We have have the opportunity to deliver phone books for Ellington, Vernon / Rockville and Tolland.  The books are in and we expect to be able to get them next week.  The money raised would go to the individual scout’s accounts which you can use to pay for things like Summer Camp, monthly camp outs and scout gear.

The scouts (and families) are responsible for bagging and delivering their own books.  The books and bags would be picked up and then bagged at home.  The estimate is 25 cents will be earned per delivery so if you would like to pay for a week of Scout Camp ($400) you would need to deliver 1,600 phone books.

Deliveries can be quick or they can be slow, it depends on how quickly you work and / or how many people you have to help you. I

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED – I NEED TO KNOW BY MONDAY: that you are interested and approximately how many books you would like.

PLEASE NOTE: There are not a large number of books this year.  We may not be able to give everyone as many books as they would like. We are working on a truck to deliver the books to my house for pick-up.  More to come. We hope to have books by this time next week Deliveries would need to be complete by the third weekend of October Please email me at jason.lipman@gmail.com to: Ask any questions you have.
