NOTES FROM THE POPCORN KERNEL

GET READY, GET SET, GO SELL POPCORN!!

What is it?
Scout Popcorn is the main fundraiser for Pack 872. It is what drives the Pinewood Derby, puts the "bling" on your uniforms and so much more! And our pack keeps about a third of the total sales of popcorn. Another third goes to support Denver area programs.

Why do I do it?
Selling popcorn helps our scouts learn important people skills, builds confidence and forms friendships. It is also the BEST opportunity parents have to offset your annual dues.

How do I do it?
Door-To-Door
Sell to your friends, neighbors, parents' co-workers and everyone you know! We take orders AND payments for their popcorn and deliver it to them at a later date.

Show and Sell
These sales are made in front of grocery stores or other area partners. We offer immediate delivery of their popcorn. We have all of the stores lined up and the details are worked out. Now all we need is YOU!

Online
We have a link to get you set up to reach out to your friends and family who live far away so they can support you too!

KIDS:
Everyone who participates gets a cool patch or pin to add to your uniform. If you participate in the show and sell, you get an extra patch! You can earn great prizes and gift cards from Trails-End based on how much you sell, so AIM HIGH!

PARENTS:
Selling popcorn is the best opportunity you have to offset your program dues. At higher sales levels. if even helps pay for camps! Combine popcorn sales with volunteering and you could pay zero, nothing, nada for your amazing scouting program!
