HELP WANTED: Troop 142 Fundraising Committee

Posted on Dec 8 2014 - 10:56pm


Troop 142's Fundraising Committee has dwindled from 5-6 people down to 2 parents over the past few years and we need to add some new faces.


. Heather Duda - in charge of the (4) Pancake Breakfasts for the Troop and Fall Popcorn Sale for the Scouts

. Kathy Winpenny - in charge of the 3+ fundraisers for the Scouts

Heather and Kathy are not quitting, but they do need some help to lighten the load.

We're looking for parents that are not currently involved with the troop committee in a leadership role to step-up and get involved. 

These are not solely roles for mothers but fathers as well!

We have the Pancake Breakfasts almost down to a science - there's little deviation from one to another.

Fundraising for the Scouts is more of a challenge as Kathy searches for unique opportunities for the boys which have not been tried before or where other groups have not followed suit and diluted our sales opportunities in the area.

We have well over 60 boys in our troop - if you are not currently involved, we're asking you to consider helping out Heather and Kathy.

If interested, please send me an email at Lititz142@aol.com or contact Heather or Kathy directly.

Philip Hinerdeer Eagle Scout Project: Donation Items Needed

Posted on Dec 7 2014 - 2:45pm

ALL Troop 142 Families:

For my Eagle Scout project, I am helping out the homeless Veterans of Lancaster County, who are being housed at Victory House, TLC (Transitional Living Center). During the winter months, the home increases in its capacity due the severe cold.

There will be 2 phases to my project: 

The first phase is a Winter Necessity Drive in which I will be collecting personal hygiene items (tooth brushes, tooth paste, soap, shampoo, dental floss, etc), towel sets, large socks, XL-3XL shirts, hats, gloves, scarves, non perishable, instant meals, and snacks.

There will be a box present at each meeting for any donations that you are able to provide.

Items will be collected from now to January 15th. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Any questions feel free to ask me.

The second phase is to redo several rooms at Victory House in the spring. More information to follow.

Thank you so much for any assistance that you are able to provide!
