Why sell popcorn?
By working on a money-earning project, Scouts have the opportunity to learn how to earn the money it takes to operate their Pack or Troop or make a donation to a charity. Plus, you will raise money! Thanks to the relationship between the Boy Scouts of America and Trails End Popcorn
, Scouts can easily sell delicious popcorn to benefit their unit.
How to sell popcorn?
There are 3 ways to sell popcorn and earn money for your Pack or Troop. First, there's the "Show and Sell"
technique where you purchase popcorn before hand and sell it to interested customers at locations such as grocery stores, banks, etc. Then there's the "Take Order"
technique where you pre-order popcorn from friends and family. Finally, you can direct popcorn lovers to the website to order their own popcorn online
with the profits going to your unit.
