This has been a Scouting tradition, and continues to be the main source of our fundraising dollars for our pack. Selling popcorn can be a fun and rewarding experience and teach lifelong lessons.
Cub Scouts have a goal of $300 to sell each year and there are incentives to help them to reach this goal and surpass it. Our ultimate goal as a Pack is $13,000! If this is met the pack will have a Lego Robotics event on December 5, 2015!
Boy Scouts have a minimum $200 sales quote for wreaths and popcorn sales or a $200 buyout.
At the beginning of each Scouting year, families are provided literature on the Popcorn Program during the popcorn kickoff celebration. Selling popcorn not only helps our organization but it provides the Scouts with great skills in the way of salesmanship, networking, community involvement and family participation. These skills lead to a sense of strong self-worth, leadership and a basic understanding of how money works.
We have a wide variety of popcorn from which to choose. We know, however, that some people just can’t eat popcorn. For those folks who wish to support Scouts but don’t want the popcorn, you can buy popcorn that will be sent to our American Armed Forces to brighten their day!
