Popcorn Fundraiser

Popcorn Fundraiser

Help your Unit build a strong annual program with Popcorn!

There is NO upfront cost to your Unit to participate, Scouts can earn their own way and you can choose the prize program or cash bonus commission and this year there will be no limit on returns. The popcorn sale also benefits the council as a whole by helping us provide youth with a quality program!
