2022 Popcorn Program
Pack 31 is excited for a "kernel popping" fundraising year! Below you will find all the tools you will need to have a successful sale. If you have any questions you can reach our Popcorn Kernel, Chris Bolter by email via this link.
As you probably know, we sell popcorn at the beginning of the year to raise funds allowing us to give back to the Pack all year long. Popcorn sales will be one of our main fundraising effort. Please support your Scout and help him achieve their sales goals. This year is more important than ever as dues have increased and we are trying to keep the cost to families to a minimum.
