All the information that Group Popcorn Coordinators & Section Leaders will need for this years' fundraising campaign is on this website.  Popcorn Coordinators and Section representatives are encouraged to attend a Council Kick-Off Meeting to get additional information and to pick up your Group's "Popcorn Sales Kits and Forms" (see #1 - REGISTER YOUR GROUP on the left for details and reservations).  If you are unable to attend a meeting and an alternate Leader/parent is unable to attend, then please contact Steve at info@pccpopcorn.com for your Popcorn Sales Kit & Forms.

Scout Popcorn fundraisers have raised considerable funds for many Groups.  Just take a look at a few last year's statistics from Groups in our own Council.
