Popcorn Fundraiser 2018

Popcorn sales support pack activities throughout the year. We ask every scout in grades 1-5 to contribute by selling some amount of popcorn. (Lion scouts are not required to do fundraising.) In addition, if a scout sells more than $250, the pack will give the scout a $50 credit toward the spring outing.  Previous spring outings included camping out on a submarine (2016) and at the Kalamazoo Air Zoo (2017).

To sell popcorn door to door:

  1. Use the popcorn sales form handed out at the pack meeting, or print out this order form and product guide at home.
  2. Practice a simple sales pitch: “Hello, I’m selling popcorn so I can go camping with my Cub Scout pack. Would you like to see the choices?” Smile and say please and thank you. Wear the uniform!
  3. To take an order, write it down on the order sheet and collect cash or a check payable to “Cub Scout Pack 10”.  (Please don’t take an order without payment!)
  4. Parents, accompany your scout from a distance, but let him do the talking. Remind him to wait outside if the customer needs to fetch a checkbook.
  5. Return the form and all payments to the pack treasurer, Rick Thyen, 52357 Brendon Hills Drive, Granger IN 46530, no later than Friday, October 12th.
