Why sell Wreaths and Popcorn?

It funds the pack:

Our fall fundraisers are important to the operation of our Pack, as they provide around 66% of our operating budget. Each Scout is asked to sell $250 in popcorn and wreaths combined ($350 for families). Historically, we have had great success with this fundraiser, allowing us to operate without asking for additional dues beyond the yearly registration.

It teaches life skills:

More important than money, Scouts learn MANY life skills by selling Wreaths and Popcorn including:

  • Learning to Set Goals

  • Building Communication Skills

  • Learning to Handle Rejection

  • Building Self-Confidence


YOUR Scout earns money!:

AFTER the scout has reached the $250/$350 threshold, the Scout will earn 20% of all additional sales, which will be placed in their “Scout Account” which can be used to pay for dues, camp fees, camping gear, or other things which are scout related. For example, selling $500 will earn the scout $50 for their personal use.


It pays for camp:

Popcorn sales are the OFFICIAL Scout Fundraiser for our Council. 73% of the proceeds stay LOCAL, either within our Pack, or within our Council, funding local camps, staff, and operations.

Prizes / Incentives:

The TOP Wreath sellers will receive a Target Gift Card!

Ways to Sell:

Door-to-Door / In Person

Sell to friends, family, and neighbors, for personal delivery by the Scout.

● With an adult, the Scout goes door to door with the Popcorn Order Form and Trails-End App. Or, call or visit friends, neighbors, and relatives.

Collect payment at the time of the sale.

● Popcorn and Wreaths can be paid for with 1 check. However, wreath forms must be turned in separately from popcorn forms, so you will be responsible for using your cash sales to appropriately split the payments.

● Credit card payments must go through the Trail's End App, and must be for POPCORN ONLY.

● Deliver product immediately if you have it on-hand. Otherwise:

● Email or call the Popcorn Kernel no more than once a week to request popcorn to cover sold orders

● Pick up the popcorn from the Popcorn Kernel at the agreed time and location.

● Deliver the popcorn to the customer within 1 week of the sale if possible.

● Because it is a food item, please do not leave product on the doorstep if no one is home. Instead, attempt redelivery later.
