SummitCorps Scouts Raise Money With Patches

They came to build miles of trails, but ended up making an even bigger impact on the community. About $15,000 bigger.

Each week of SummitCorps brought with it a new group of Arrowmen, and with them a new batch of patches. At the end of each week, Arrowmen held a patch auction to sell their precious collectibles in order to raise money for local organizations.

The auctions proved to be a huge success raising $15,357.50 which was then split between 7 different organizations.

Here’s the breakdown:
