Please, please, please...check with your local Council before
undertaking ANY fund-rasing activity this month (or any month)!
Lots of local Councils have perhaps already reached to those same
stores for a "donation" to the SME/FOS campaign, and many of them (
for instance, Penneys') have policies about how much they can give to
a particular group or organization....if the Council already got their
$500 from them and you turn around (even IF you're only a UNIT of the
BSA), the business has no alternative than to refuse to "chip in" on
top of any monies your unit makes.
Better safe than sorry.....make sure that you have the Council's OK!
(a friendly reminder from someone that went out at this time to gather
SME/FOS monies....and was told several times "We gave to the
Scouts...Pack 000 (or Troop 000)....you guys want more??? We can't do
