What is the Annual Popcorn Sale:
Each fall, Scouts hit the streets selling popcorn in front of grocery stores, in their neighborhood and to friends and family as part of our Annual Popcorn Sale. This program is a Council administered fundraiser designed to engage Scouts in the process of raising the funds that will support their unit’s program needs for the entire year. It also gives Scouts pride knowing they earned their own way!
Methods of Selling
70% of the proceeds from Popcorn sales stay within the local council. The individual unit can earn between 30%-50% of the retail value of the popcorn for every bag sold.
Show and Sell:
This sale is designed to sell popcorn that your unit popcorn kernel signs out and picks up at a council pickup location. Then, at a location of your choice, you and the boys from your unit sell the popcorn directly to the public.
Show and Deliver:
This is the best way to increase popcorn sales. The boys in your unit take an order form and product door to door. The boy sells the product, delivers the product, and collects the money all in one trip.
Take Order Sale:
The boys in your unit take orders on a form for the different varieties of popcorn and then deliver them to their customers. The forms are turned in and one unit order is made. The popcorn is picked up by the unit popcorn kernel and distributed to the boys who made sales.
Your Scout can sell online to help earn his own way and fund his Scouting adventures. On-line sales earns 50% directly back to your unit.
Trail’s End partners with Soldiers’ Angels to deploy all military popcorn sales to various bases, VA hospitals, and National Guard units.
