totaled at about $16,000. The tables cost about $10,000 and an additional $6,000 was needed to purchase new probes and microscopes to replace the aging equipment. The pack secured its last table pledge on
March 17, during a fundraiser at Chunky’s Cinema in Pelham. Wilkerson added that sales in raffle tickets alone have totaled over $3,200, bringing the amount of money raised for the equipment above the half way mark. The new equipment will benefit the school’s natural and earth science curriculums. According to Wilkerson, the seemingly daunting task of fundraising and securing donations became much easier for the pack as time went on. “We started seeing [table donations] come in at a rate of two per week,” Wilkerson said. The donations continued to pour in; she estimated that the group procured about $100 per hour while tabling at the polls on March 13. A few days later, the group made about $500 over the course of three hours outside of Sovereign Bank. “People were stopping just to donate money,” Wilkerson added, “I
think a five dollar bill was the lowest amount handed out that day.” She added that many people were not interested in even purchasing a raffle ticket, but instead, were just looking to donate to the cause. Wilkerson estimated that the boys in the pack have accumulated 49 hours of community service during the fundraiser, and have learned some valuable lessons along the way. Shy kids have broken out of their shell, and they have made a difference in the community that they call home, “It makes it worthwhile to see the kids come into their own,” she said. There are still a few more chances to purchase a raffle ticket and help the pack achieve their goal. The gift baskets will be given away at their egg hunt on March 31. The boys will be recognized for their hard work at their annual blue and gold banquet on March 24.
