You can still sign-up to participate in the Wreath Sale this fall! First, you need to tell Three Harbors Council that you plan to sell wreaths. Sign-up online with Three Harbors Council by clicking here.
Once you’ve signed-up with the council to sell wreaths, you will then need to register your profile with Northwoods Wreaths. You can do that by going here. Even if you have previously registered, everyone must create a new profile this year.
We want to encourage EVERY unit that typically participates in the wreath sale to rejoin the sale this year. Even if your unit is in good financial shape, some of your families may look forward to this opportunity to help pay for some of or all their Scouting expenses. Plus, with a little extra money from a really successful sale, think of what more you can do with your unit program to welcome families back and invite new families into Scouting!
The Deadline to earn your 1% registration commission is September 9, 2021. You must register with both the council and Northwoods to qualify for this commission.
If you have not attended either the in-person training or the online training, there is still an opportunity to earn your 1% commission. Please contact your District Wrangler to make arrangements for training and to pick up your unit’s sales material. The deadline to earn your 1% training commission is September 9, 2021.
2021 Commission Structure

- Sign up to sell on time with both the council and Northwoods Wreaths vendor: +1 %

We are excited to announce our new technology partner, Rally Up. Rally Up is a platform for online fundraising where we can build custom sites for your group to sell items. Visit this demo page to familiarize yourself with the online sales platform.
There is a one-time $50 fee for the site which will be billed on your final invoice. Additionally, all online wreath sales must be included in your final order so you can pick them up for delivery. Wreaths ordered online will not be shipped to the customer.
Visit the wreath website for this FAQ about online wreath sales.
Once you’ve visited the demo page and reviewed the FAQ, you can decide if you want to use the online sales option for your unit sales. If you choose to move forward with online sales, you can complete this form to have your online sales site set-up!
Unit Wreath Kick-off
Holding a fun, informative Wreath Sales Kick-off is a great way to excite your Scouts about the importance of selling wreaths and informing parents of how selling wreaths can help offset some or potentially all the costs of Scouting for families or the unit!
During the Product Sales Trainings held in early August, you saw an example of a Product Sales Kick-off that you can replicate in your unit to help build some enthusiasm behind your unit’s wreath sales. Plan that kick-off now using the sample agenda in your Wreath Leader’s Guide.
- September 10 – Wreath Sale begins
- September 10-12 – Fallen Hero Wreath Blitz Weekend
- September 14 – Blitz Weekend submissions due by 11:59 p.m.
