Popcorn Sales- 9/24-10/22

Support our pack by selling popcorn! The pack will get over 30% of the proceeds, which are used to fund programs and to purchase awards for the scouts. Without this fundraiser, our annual dues would be much higher.

This fundraiser is a great experience for the Scouts, and they get to earn cool prizes. In addition, any Scout who sells $200 or more will get invited to a special outing with the Cubmaster, and the highest seller in each den will get to (softly) put a cream pie in their den leader's face!

Popcorn may be sold Door-to-Door in your neighborhood, at our booths at CVS and the Farmer's Market, and even online! We have popcorn available for immediate sale, and anything we don't have can be ordered, with a delivery date of mid-November.

Unsold popcorn, and all order forms, must be turned in by 10/22.

For more information, contact your den popcorn coordinator, den leader, or our Popcorn Kernels, Michelle Crewse and Heidi Silva.
