2017 Popcorn Sale

Posted in: Pack News by rlgray on August 30, 2017

Key Dates:

If you can help, have questions, or need sales collateral, contact your den’s popcorn parent or  the pack popcorn kernel, Michelle McElhannon!

Each year, Pack 200 participates in the nationwide Cub Scout Popcorn Sale. This fundraiser serves as the Pack’s primary source of funding throughout the year. Pack 200 receives 30% of the total sales and this amount has allowed us to do the following at little or no cost to each scout:

  • Camping trips (SMORES!)
  • Derby kits
  • Advancements and awards (patches, beltloops and pins)
  • Leader training
  • Annual picnic

Aside from the financial benefits to the Pack, each scout benefits from the sale in other ways. Selling popcorn allows each boy to develop confidence, learn how to work towards a goal, and work as a member of a team.  Additionally there are requirements for most ranks for setting goals and working towards them.
