Shop Rite / Acme Gift Cards
We are still selling Acme and Shoprite cards with 5% of the purchase price going into your scout account. For those of you who already have boys who have aged out, would you be willing to keep buying the cards and we will deposit the 5% into an account for one or more of our scouts. This would be a great opportunity to give back to the troop.
