Popcorn order forms were handed out at the September pack meeting. If you didn’t receive an order form, need another form, or have questions please contact the Kernel, Samir Mavrakis via ScoutTrack.
This year the Popcorn sale will run through October 15. Popcorn selling is our major fundraiser for the year in Cub Scouts. All popcorn orders and money must be turned in by the Pack Meeting on October 15. Product will be delivered in early December.
We have compiled a list of selling tips/tricks/techniques to help your child be more successful in selling.
Popcorn sales run primarily September and October and is traditionally a major fundraiser for Cub Scouts. The product is delivered in early November (precise dates TBA). Why do we sell popcorn? In short, it raises more money to fund programs!
Here are more SCOUT reasons.
Scouts experience adult interaction (a Scouting method).
Scouts are responsible for their own program.
Incentives (prizes, money, trips, etc.)
Easy and profitable compared to other fundraisers for both the council and the unit.
It’s popcorn time! The proceeds from this fundraiser go directly to help our Pack pay for expenses and activities for the year, as well as supporting our local council’s facilities, staffing, program materials and resources.
Reminder! Order forms are due November 7th! If you have any final questions about popcorn sales, please contact Chad O’Neal.
