2021 Popcorn Fundraising

BSA Popcorn

Dear Parents, Dear Scouts,

Our Annual Popcorn Fundraising Drive has begun again.  Before going into the “HOW” Troop 1128 will carry out sales this year, we need draw your attention to the following:

WHY are Popcorn sales so important to our troop?

Popcorn sales are key for our scouts to be able to benefit from our troop’s programs, contributing to funding things like:

  • Camping Trips, Hikes, Goshen
  • High Adventure Trips
  • Troop camping gears and equipment

Without our scouts’ popcorn sales, all those activities would require much higher financial contributions from us all – in some cases, families would not be able to afford activities.

We need everybody’s help – now onto the “HOW” we will accomplish it this season.

Each patrol will set a “Popcorn Goal” that will be tracked against the other Patrols. We will once again display the tracking charts for the popcorn sale to encourage each scout to participate.

Last year, the pandemic pushed us to sell “remotely”, online, telephone, etc.  This year we will combine the on-line expertise with “Face-to-Face” sales. Hopefully this will lead our troop to exceed our targets.

There are many ways to sell popcorn:

  1. The traditional “Take Order” (door-to-door)
  2. “Show and Sell” (table sales) activities
  3. On-line selling opportunities see – below for more information
  4. Use the attached Flyer (please put your First Name and Last Initial ONLY) on the form – “Popcorn Flyers” to make door-to-door sales easier and more efficient.
  5. ”Show and Deliver” (product to doorstep) events where individual and teams of scouts will “check out product” and deliver it as they comb the neighborhood         

For on-line sales, below are some useful resources to make this as easy as possible for Scouts:

  • Please do not create another Trail’s End account; use last year’s account. New scouts will get an invite from Ms Lucia Sugianto. Text APP to 62771 to get a link to download
  • Email and social media selling video (TBD)
  • Troop 1128 Email Script (TBD)
  • Troop 1128 Facebook Script (TBD)
  • 2021 Popcorn Online Direct Product Spread
