Popcorn

 

All the money you need in the least amount of time

The annual popcorn sale provides the best opportunity for Scout units to raise all the money necessary for a quality, year-round program in the least amount of time possible. Unlike other product sales, units that can not sell their entire inventory of popcorn are not stuck with the cost of the surplus items.

The sale is the only product sales fundraiser approved by our council’s Executive Board, which means it is the only fundraiser in which your Scouts can wear their Scout uniform while selling/participating. It is not necessary to fill out a unit money earning application to participate in the sale.

 

 

The Buffalo Trail Council will be moving to a new Popcorn Vendor for the 2022 sale.  Our new supplier, Pecatonica River Popcorn, has been supporting Scouting fundraising efforts for over 35 years.
