Support Scouting, Buy Popcorn from a Scout! | Community Spirit
Starting this weekend through November, Scouts in your neighborhood will be selling popcorn as one of their major fundraising projects. Over 70% of the purchase price goes to help youth in the Scouting program locally. Money earned from the popcorn sale pays for many of the Scout's activities, camps, and equipment.
BOYS CAN EARN MUCH MORE THAN MONEY
Few activities demonstrate to Scouts the value of planning, organization, and commitment more clearly than a Unit's combined efforts in a popcorn sale. Scouts develop and practice new skills, learn about sales and marketing, and reach new levels of personal success. And, once again, Scouts who participate in the sale may accomplish requirements for Achievements, Activity Badges, and Merit Badges.
BY PURCHASING POPCORN YOU WILL HELP a local Scout in our community earn their own way in Scouting.
Many packs and troops rely on this fundraiser to support their activities like Pinewood Derby and resident camp, throughout the year. Scouts earn prizes and can also build scholarship money for college. On average, 70 percent of all popcorn sales go directly to support local Scouting.
Scouts will be selling all-time favorites, including microwave popcorn in Butter Light, Kettle Corn and Unbelievable Butter flavors, as well as signature snacks like Chocolatey Triple Delight, Classic Caramel Corn, Caramel Corn with Nuts, Butter Toffee Caramel Corn, Cheddar Cheese Corn and White Cheddar Cheese Corn. All flavors of Trail's End microwave popcorn are made with heart-healthy canola oil, making them lower in calories, total fat, saturated fat and sodium, while also providing Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids. The entire product line contains 0g trans fats.
Customers also have the option of sending popcorn donations to U.S. Troops stationed all over the world. Each military donation goes towards the purchase of products that are sent to our military personnel stationed throughout each branch of service. 70% of every Military Donation supports local Scouting.
Trail's End also offers an online selling option for Scouts who don't want to go door-to-door, or who want to sell to family and friends that live on the mainland. "By placing an order on trails-end.com, people who don't personally know a Scout can also support their local council, just by entering 96817 as the Council’s zip code."
Beginning this weekend, look for Scouts taking orders in your neighborhood or at your local supermarkets and exchanges. For more information or to place an online order, please visit www.trails-end.com.
