Popcorn Fundraiser 
We grew up in a different time. As kids, nothing was handed to us. We either worked or helped to earn our rewards: money, an activity with friends, or something we wanted. Scouting still believes in and stands for the core value of earning!

Benefits to Your Scout and Family:
  • Teaches Scouts the value & process of setting and working toward goals
  • Gives Scouts a strong sense of accomplishment through recognition
  • Enhances communication, leadership skills and confidence in your Scout
  • Scouts can earn valuable rewards including gift cards and prizes
  • Scouts can earn their way to an adventure at a Pack Sleepover   

Fundraising Uses:

Our fundraising effort helps to make Scouting a great experience for our sons, siblings and parents.  Here is a just a small sampling of activities supported by your fund raising efforts and participation:
  • Patches, badges, belt loops, pins and recognition awards
  • Blue & Gold Banquet
  • Pack Picnic in New Castle
  • Pinewood derby kits, trophies and awards
  • Rocket derby kits
  • Cub World camping
Since popcorn sales are our chance to fund the Pack for the entire year we ask that each family help carry the load.  It should be a joint effort from all of us. We prefer to spend our time on activities - not several fundraisers. So if we do a good job in December we can move on and enjoy the Scouting year with fewer distractions.

Ways to Sell:

Take Orders
  • The Scout requests popcorn on consignment (variety could vary). He sells what he can and returns the rest with no penalty.
  • The Scout with his Akela goes door to door with a Take Order Form.  Take Order Forms will provided during the Popcorn Kickoff 
  • The customer writes his/her order on the Take Order Form and the Scout collects the money.
  • The Scout processes the order and delivers the Popcorn to the Customer in a few weeks.
Selling at Work
  • Mom and/or Dad take an order form to their work.
  • Fellow co-workers write their order on the order form.
  • Mom and/or Dad deliver product and collect the money in a few weeks.
  • (It is best to collect the money upfront when possible)
Selling Online
  • The Scout communicates his Order Key via email, phone, and so on, to potential or existing customers. The Customer can go online and purchase popcorn with a Credit Card  at http://www.trails-end.com/
  • The Product is shipped directly from Trail’s End to the customer and the Scout and Unit receive credit for the Sale.

Prizes and Rewards:
  • EVERY scout that participates will receive a reward from the Pack
  • Many other awards available based on amount sold (see Popcorn Fundraiser Flyer for details).
