Popcorn

Is your unit selling popcorn? If not, why? This is one of the best fundraisers for Scouting. Trails End Popcorn is a quality brand with different types of popped and unpopped popcorn. Units who have participated with this program in prior years have Scouts who are able to attend Cub Resident Camp, Summer Camp, Philmont, or National Jamboree with little out-of pocket cash.  Check out this information, and if you still have questions, contact LPC Field Director Justin Jepsen at jjepsen@bsamail.org.
