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 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.
Benefits to Your Scout and Family:
Teaches Scouts the value & process of setting and working toward goals
Gives Scouts a strong sense of accomplishment through recognition
Enhances communication, leadership skills and confidence in your Scout
Scouts can earn valuable rewards including gift cards and prizes
Scouts can earn Scout Bucks that can pay for all of their activities this year. Some examples include Rock Climbing, Overnights at the Museum of Science, Family Camping, Adventure Day Camp, Webelos Overnight Week, and the Six Flags Camporee!

Ways to Sell:
Show and Sells
Show and Sells make up a big part of our popcorn program. We've obtained permission from local businesses to set up a sales table. Show and Sells have plenty of products on-hand for people to buy. Different Scouts work at the table in shifts. Always have adult supervision.
Contact Laura Fullerton for show and sell times and other important details.
Show and Deliver
The Scout requests popcorn on consignment (variety could vary). He sells what he can and returns the rest with no penalty
The Scout, with his Akela, goes door to door with a Take Order Form
The Scout carries Trail's End Popcorn with him (in a van or car) and is able to fulfill the customer's popcorn order right away.
The Scout with his Akela goes door to door with a Take Order Form. Take Order Forms will provided during the Popcorn Kickoff
The customer writes his/her order on the Take Order Form and the Scout collects the money.
The Scout processes the order and delivers the Popcorn to the Customer in a few weeks.
Selling at Work
Mom and/or Dad take an order form to their work.
Fellow co-workers write their order on the order form.
Mom and/or Dad deliver product and collect the money in a few weeks.
(It is best to collect the money upfront when possible)
The Scout communicates his Order Key via email, phone, and so on, to potential or existing customers. The Customer can go online and purchase popcorn with a Credit Card at http://www.trails-end.com/
The Product is shipped directly from Trail’s End to the customer and the Scout and Unit receive credit for the Sale.
Scouts can also create their own Show and Sell
by reaching out to local businesses and getting permission to set up a table for sales. If you do, be sure to let us know. We're happy to help you help us by coordinating other Scout's participation and providing the popcorn!
Trail's End Online Help & Training
