2021 Popcorn Sale

The annual popcorn sale is our biggest unit fundraiser of the year and there are many benefits to selling. Fundraising teaches Scouts many important life skills such as goal setting, salesmanship, communication, teamwork, time management, and countless others. Not only is it a great opportunity for learning, but it also helps deliver the Scouting program to Scouts across our council by providing camperships, membership fees, uniforms, and other important items. Many of our units are able to fund their entire Scouting year with this one sale! This includes paying for things like summer camp, advancements, and membership costs. 

How Can I Purchase Popcorn?

Our sale runs from September through October. During that time you are likely to see Scouts selling popcorn outside of a number of stores. You can also contact our office to be directed to a unit in your area that is selling. Finally,  you can also order select items online.

Calling All Units! We want to see your photos! If you take pictures of your Scouts selling this year, and wouldn't mind us sharing those photos, please send them to Audrey Turner. They might be used for promotional materials, presentations, or shared on our Facebook page to show our Scouts in action!
