Raise money for your Cub Scout Pack

Popcorn fundraisers are gaining in popularity because of their successful track record. In fact, Trails’ End Popcorn is the official fundraiser for Cub Scouts and is the only pre-approved Scout fundraiser. Over the last 25 years it has provided pack after pack with the funds they need to carry out the program. As Cubmaster for my sons’ Cub Scout Pack, I can tell you there are so many expenses involved with Scouting that most people don’t even realize like adult leadership trainings, guest speakers for Pack Meetings and awarding patches, pins and belt loops as they are earned. Whether it’s an overnight, pack event, Pinewood Derby cars and trophies or the Blue & Gold Banquet, there is always something that needs funding. It can be a deterrent for parents to absorb all of the costs. Some of the overnight trips we want to plan this year are more expensive than other events, Popcorn sales is a GREAT way to subsidize these events. When you choose to participate in the Trail’s End popcorn fundraiser you’ll benefit from the long standing tradition of scouts selling popcorn. You’ll get support from your local Scout Council and pack. It will also be easy to sell because so many people are familiar with Trails End popcorn. They may have even been buying popcorn from Scouts for years! This year we want to build on the success of our Show & Sell Popcorn Sales, in addition to the traditional Take Order way of selling popcorn.  We also hope more scouts try selling popcorn online, it’s an easy way to get the word out to many people, plus you don’t have to worry about collecting the money (and the Popcorn Kernel does not have to pick up the Popcorn for distribution).

Popcorn For Our Troops

ALERT!:  Watch For Scouts!  Operation Popcorn Fall 2011 is Underway!

Trail’s End sends popcorn treats to the U.S. Military on behalf of the Boy Scouts of America. Scouts can offer two levels of military donations – $30 silver level donation and $50 gold level donation – to consumers across the country. When consumers purchase this option, Trail’s End will send a variety of popcorn treats to U.S. troops and their families. Each military donation level is available on the Scout’s paper order form and on trails-end.com throughout the year.   2014 kicks off the 8th year of Popcorn For Our Troops. Here are the results from the past few years:

  • Consumers have donated over $42 million worth of popcorn to U.S. troops
  • In 2013 alone, consumers purchased over 189,000 donations of popcorn to U.S. troops
  • Over 3,000 tons of popcorn treats have been shipped to hundreds of locations around the world
  • Consumers have placed over 98,000 orders online for the Military Product Donation

Trail’s End ships popcorn to U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq, all other U.S. Military Bases overseas, domestic U.S. Military Bases, and families of U.S. servicemen and women.
