Friends of Reading Scouting Annual Mulch Fundraiser is Open!

Reading, MA — This year marks our third annual Friends of Reading Scouting (FORS) Mulch fundraiser. Last year and we were able to raise over $1,400. One hundred percent (100%) of the funds raised help support Scouting in Reading, MA. The proceeds from last year’s fundraiser were used to defray the costs of Scouting activities, including Cub Pack and Scout Troop programs, summer camp, monthly campouts, and other programs designed to develop the next generation of leaders. Your support will help to ensure the participation of those who may not be fortunate enough to do so otherwise.

We are pleased to announce that the 2024 FoRS Mulch Fundraiser is now officially open. You can order securely at our website –

The sale will be limited to bulk mulch with a minimum order of 2 yards. There is a delivery charge of $35 for a 2-yard mulch delivery, with no delivery charge for 3 yards of mulch or more. We are please to continue our partnership with a local vendor, Russell Farms, as our builk mulch supplier.

We are also pleased to announce pricing remains the same as last year. Bulk mulch is priced at $62 per yard except for Dark Bark, which is $64 per yard, and playground chips are priced at $62 per yard. Bulk orders will be accepted through June 30, 2024.
