Creative ways to fun your units program and keep scouting affordable

As the costs associated with being in scouts continues to grow, I thought that perhaps units with creative ways to cover costs and assist families could share some ideas. I was with a troop that was fortunate enough to have a medical office offer their parking lot during college football games. The only thing they asked was that the troop pick up the litter left by the users. They had been used to having people park there illegally and then leaving litter, beer bottles and such for the staff to pick up. 40 cars X $5 was an easy $200 each game to earn. They also got $200 for cleaning up a shopping center parking lot. What do you do?
