Our fundraising effort helps to make Scouting a great experience for our sons, siblings and parents. Here is a just a small sampling of the previous and/or potential activities supported by your fund raising efforts and participation:
If we can increase our fundraising efforts, we hope to be able to offset more costs of Scouting for everyone. Some Packs earn enough selling popcorn to pay for all costs of Scouting every year, including Den dues and outings as well as all costs of Pack overnight and camping events.
Benefits to Your Scout and Family include:
Remember to ask people to support your year in scouting!
- Kick-off is NOW, and we are selling though 10/28 (no exceptions)
- 9/17 - Popcorn ready for Show’N’Delivers (neighborhood walks) and Show’N’Sells
- 9/30 - Extra forms at the September Pack Meeting
- weekend of 11/19 - Take Order Popcorn pick up

Successful Selling Ideas from Scouts
Wear your uniform and bring popcorn and order forms whenever you think you might have an impromptu opportunity to sell.
Scouts can set up Show n Sells and let the Popcorn Kernel know if they would like other Scouts to help. We'll put it on the signup sheet and send out emails alerting other Scouts
You can also take orders at any Show n Sell
Parents can help their Scouts to log in to the popcorn site and send links to invite distant friends and relatives to help support their scouting
Check with your place of worship to find out if you can sell popcorn in front of the building after service.
Ask at businesses you or your parents regularly patronize if they would like to support your scouting by buying popcorn.
If there are multiple stores in a shopping center, there may be multiple opportunities for sales or a Show and Sell
Outside the train stations - Friday afternoons (payday!) may be worthwhile. Or take orders anytime
