Apple Day

Apple Day is a fundraising tradition that started right here in Canada.

This is annual event provides our Scouting youth with an opportunity to show their appreciation to the general public for their support throughout the year. Our youth distribute apples as a way of saying “Thank You” to the community. Donations are accepted in exchange, but apples are not sold.

Any money raised during Apple Day goes towards improving the Scouting program by provided more outdoor Adventures for youth, camping equipment, training and many other endeavours.

Each Group has a designated area to canvass including neighbourhood stores and other public areas. Many Groups participate in Apple Day on various weekends throughout October and will be out in your neighbourhood asking for donations — so please donate generously when you receive an apple!
