It's not too late to join the popcorn fun! 

Scouts across the council are seeing success selling door to door, online, at storefronts, and to family after the first week of sales! If you haven't started selling you can start today through October 31st using the app or by printing this form.

Pack 77 reported that they sold $1,000 over a 4 hour period last Friday at Festival Foods. That's an average of $250/hour or over $75/hour back to the local unit! Where else can you find a starting job making $75/hour?  Overall they are averaging $175-$250/ hour in sales! The lowest rate at $175/hour in sales comes out to an average of over $55/hour back to the Scout/unit, which is still a really great hourly rate! Bottom line is the community wants to support local Scouting by purchasing popcorn when asked. 

Is your unit not signed up to sell? Did you know you can sell as an individual family/Scout to earn funds for your Scouting adventures? Did you want to check out product to sell at storefronts or door to door? Email for details and visit:
