If a child in uniform rings your doorbell this week, it’s not a late trick or treater. It may seem too soon to think about it, but the holidays will be on us before you know it. And Southborough Cub Scouts are launching their annual holiday fundraiser.

Pack 1 & 926 scouts will be hitting the streets for door-to-door sales of Christmas wreaths and Hanukkah candles.

The Cub Scout Annual Holiday Door-to-Door Sale runs through Sunday November 13th. Southborough Cub Scouts will be pounding the pavement to sell evergreen wreaths and Hanukkah candles.

The price is $18 per wreath or $15 per box of candles. Deliveries will be made by November 23rd.

The holiday sale is the only pack-wide event to fund Cub Scout programming throughout the year.

There will be additional sales opportunities at the Transfer Station on November 19th, November 26th, and December 3rd. But buying direct from a Cub Scout at your door can really make their day. So, keep an ear out for that knocking. (For those of you who aren’t interested in a wreath or candles, you can always support the scouts by making a donation to their troop instead.)

If you aren’t visited by the scouts but want to take part in the fundraiser, please feel free to email Laura ( or Sara ( and they will assist with taking your order remotely.
