Popcorn Sales

The 2017 Fall Popcorn Sale is quickly approaching. Each year our sale raises more than $800,000 for local Scouting and ensures that we can continue to offer the highest quality programs for our youth (that’s a more than 70% return of the cost of the product to local Scouting, no other fundraiser comes close to that!). The Popcorn sale should play a large role in helping your families pay for the Scouting program in your unit and is a great opportunity to teach our Scouts about the importance of earning their own way in life.
