The Popcorn Sale is Important!

There are plenty of good reasons for your Scouts to take part in the annual popcorn sale. Scouts can earn money for camp and activities throughout the year. Scouts also learn valuable skills like teamwork, goal setting, time management and salesmanship – just to name a few. Scouts gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment, the popcorn sale is not about selling popcorn, it’s about promoting Scouting!

Selling popcorn also helps the Orange County Council raise money for improving our camps properties, offering more extensive training for our volunteer leaders, and keeps program and activity costs down. Best of all, there is NO upfront cost to your Unit to participate!

Popcorn Pantry – Popcorn Swap

During the Popcorn sale you may encounter a need for more product or have some extra product that hasn’t sold as quickly as you thought. Help out your fellow Scouts and EXCHANGE!

You can go to the Popcorn Pantry on Facebook to post a need for excess product. This is a closed group so you will need to ask to join, sign up early so you don’t have to wait! If you’re not on Facebook, don’t worry! Your District Kernel can help get the word out. Use the Transfer function in the popcorn system to complete the transaction. All units should confirm cases are full and product is in perfect condition at the time of the Exchange. Only full cases can be exchanged, no single items.
