Popcorn Sale

All the money you need in the least amount of time

The annual popcorn sale provides the best opportunity for Scout units to raise all the money necessary for a quality, year-round program in the least amount of time possible. Unlike other product sales, units that can not sell their entire inventory of popcorn are not stuck with the cost of the surplus items.

The sale is the only product sales fundraiser approved by our council’s Executive Board, which means it is the only fundraiser in which your Scouts can wear their Scout uniform while selling/participating. It is not necessary to fill out a unit money earning application to participate in the sale.

Trail’s End Amazon rewards

Unit Kernels, are you ready to submit for the Amazon Scout rewards?  Here are the steps…

  2. Does the total Scout sales match or go below the Unit Retail Total on the Rewards option?

If both answers are yes, you should be able to click the blue “SUBMIT SCOUT REWARDS” button.  Not an option – please email [email protected], include your Unit type and Unit number
