Fund Raising

Fund Rasing

FUND RAISING

Troop 315 has two main activities during the year as fund raisers to support the troop.

1. ALUMINUM CAN RECYCLING

The troop owns a small trailer which is parked behind Harvey Brown Church for collecting aluminium cans. When the trailer becomes full, parents of scouts in the troop volunteer to haul the trailer to a local recycyling center to empty the trailer. This process repeats about every four to six weeks. Parents are encouraged to participate in this rotating schedule to haul cans to the recycling center.


2. PARKING CARS - UNIVERSITY of LOUISVILLE FOOTBALL GAMES

Each football season the troop parks cars at the U of L football home games at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. Typically we have access to one large private lot for one game and a smaller private lot for all other games. Parents are encouraged to participate in this fund raising activity.

2013 Parking Schedule - Sign Ups Needed !! - Please contact Mr Ostertag
