Buy your Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts Trail's End Popcorn

Why should your unit sell popcorn?

  1. Popcorn is the best single fundraiser for scouting units, hands down! Your unit gets back 35% of your total sales in cash plus 6 to 8% in prizes!!
  2. If you make this fundraiser count each year, you may never have to pay a dime out of your pocket for scouting activities again.
  3. Participating in the popcorn sale can help you teach your scouts the value of earning thier own way
  4. Advancement opportunities for your scouts.



Three Ways to Sell

  1. Traditional Take Order-Scouts receive order forms to take to neighbors, relatives, etc.
  2. Show and Deliver-Units order an amount of popcorn on consignment then set up displays in the community to sell it.
  3. Online Sales-Through trails-end.com.  A year round method for scouts to sell popcorn which is then shipped directly to customers.
