Apple Day is fundraising event in which Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Scouts receive donations from the public and present an apple in appreciation. Groups can canvas neighbourhood stores, door-to-door and other traveled areas.

It is a good idea to practice an apple script the meeting before Apple Day. We usually take the approach of offering passerby an apple, and then following that up with a request for a donation.

Tips

  • Remind Youth to speak clearly and make eye contact
  • The event is a fundraiser, but it is also a way to make scouting visible in the community
  • Smile!

Sample selling script

Youth: Hello would you like an apple?
Random passerby: Why yes I would! Thank you!
Y: Would you like to make a donation to support INSERT NAME OF SCOUT GROUP?
RP: Sure!
Money and Apples are exchanged.
