One of the best ways to help Scouting at all levels is to purchase Scout popcorn during the traditional sales months of October and November (but popcorn may be purchased year-round online by clicking HERE). Whether you purchase it for your own enjoyment or a holiday gift for your customers, you’ll be helping youth throughout our community.
Cub Scouts will receive free day Camp or a Cuboree for sales over $1,000 and a second event for sales over $2,000.
Webelos, Boy Scouts, and Venturers will receive free resident camp in Council (nontransferable) for sales over $2,000.
Besides being the best quality popcorn you may ever taste, over 70% of the proceeds from each sale go to support local Scouting at three different levels:
1) The Council
2) The Pack or Troop
This includes such things as project and program materials, camping equipment, transportation costs, rentals, etc. In some cases, 100% of the annual funding necessary to run a Pack or Troop comes through popcorn sales.
3) The Scout
Perhaps one of the most important things a Scout learns through popcorn sales is the value of the dollar. He works hard to earn his commission and when he spends it on things like Scout camp, activities, program materials, or uniforming, he now has a sense of pride and ownership in the program. Scouts also learn goal setting as a result of the incentives program.
