WHY SELL POPCORN?

Here are just a few reasons your unit should sell popcorn-share them with your leaders and parents to get everyone excited about selling!

  1. EVERYBODY loves Popcorn!!!
  2. Popcorn is popular and 3 out of 4 people will buy when asked.
  3. Prizes for your Scouts-and they love to earn prizes!
  4. Four ways to sell: door to door with show-n-deliver; take-order; show and sell; and online.
  5. Your unit can raise enough funds for an entire year’s program.
  6. Boys build confidence, self esteem, learn life skills, goal setting, and how to earn their own way.
  7. Money raised stays local to support individual unit and council programs.
