3/17/20 - Update on Spring Product Sale
We understand that with schools currently closed and people staying home, Scouts may not sell many candy bars at first. Over time, society will return to normal and sales will pick up.
Even though the council must pay the candy company for the product received within 30-days, units will be given additional time to pay the council.
The good thing about chocolate bars is that they have a fairly long shelf life. If the candy is kept in a cool location, Scouts will be able to sell the product when life returns to normal.
What Scouts can do now to sell
With people spending more time at home, they will also be spending more time on social media. We encourage Scouts to create a short video explaining that they are selling candy bars to help them go to camp. They can take orders now and deliver in the future when conditions permit.
Parents can bring a box to work and help their Scout by selling to co-workers.
As conditions improve and people get back to their normal routines, we encourage Scouts to have a plan on how they will sell - storefronts, church, in their neighborhood, etc.
