Popcorn Sales

WELCOME to the 2018 FALL POPCORN SALE! 

Each year, the popcorn sale raises more than $800,000 for local Scouting.  This ensures that we can continue to offer the highest quality programs for our youth.  This program provides more than a 70% return to local Scouting units and the council; no other fundraiser comes close to that! 
The popcorn sale should play a large role in helping your families pay for the Scouting program in your unit and is a great opportunity to teach our Scouts about the importance of earning their own way in life. 

Popcorn Training Schedule

Our four Council Popcorn Training Opportunities will orient Unit Popcorn Kernels and Committee Members on the 2018 Sale.  By attending you earn a 1% Commission Bonus for your Unit.  
Participants are welcome at any of the trainings offered.
