Popcorn

Support a Scout you know. Order online here.

 

Why should units sell?

  • Increase your unit and council income – 73% stays in the local area.
  • Scouts pay for their way for various Scouting programs and activities.
  • Scouts learn life lessons by “earning their own way.”
  • There are loads of incentives to motivate Scouts: cool prizes, Top 100 Club, college scholarship, free summer camp and more.
  • Burger's Smokehouse products (snack sticks, cheese & summer sausage) offered for sale.
  • Free popcorn sales kits including sample product.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars go back to the Scouting program in the Great Rivers Council as a result of the annual Trail's End popcorn sale. Over 73% of all dollars collected during the sale support local Scouting. The popcorn sale is a way for a Scout to support his or her way through the various activities during the year. There are four options to sell popcorn: traditional take order sales, show-and-deliver, sell online to friends and family out of town and show-and-sell. For more information, contact your district popcorn kernel or district executive.
