SPARTA, NJ - Scouts from Sparta Troop 150 visited Metro Supply in Rockaway, New Jersey this past December to say “thank you” and present them with a plaque for their support of Troop 150’s Mulch Madness fundraiser. The Mulch Madness sale is Troop 150’s main fundraiser for the year where the Scouts go door-to-door in their neighborhoods taking orders for bags of mulch or directing customers to the Troop’s website for online purchases of mulch.
Assistant Scoutmaster Andrew Muller said, “Without the generous support of Metro Supply our fundraiser would have been a bust. Ofelia and Mike Dibenedetto, owners of Metro Supply went out of their way to make our fundraiser a success.”
Thanks to support of Metro Supply Troop 150 sold over 3,300 bags of mulch in 2018. With the proceeds from the past two years Troop 150 has purchased new camping gear including an enclosed trailer to carry the Troop’s equipment to and from campouts.
Sparta Troop 150 meets at 7 p.m. on Mondays at the Sparta United Methodist Church. For more information visit spartatroop150.org or like us on facebook at Sparta Troop 150-BSA.
