2017 Popcorn Sale
Click HERE to register your Unit for the 2017 Popcorn Sale! (available 4/1/17)
The Shenandoah Area Council Popcorn Sale is conducted annually during the fall. This program allows packs, troops, teams, and crews the opportunity to participate in a coordinated council-wide fundraiser. The Council-wide kickoff is held in August with the active sales period from September to October.
Last year, over $220,000 of popcorn was sold with more than $154,000 of that amount used to support both local units and council programs. Thousands of Scouts benefited from the sale by earning prizes, gaining sales experience, achieving a level of helping to earn their way in funding their year of Scouting. Many Scouts also qualified for scholarships and other bonus awards.
Plan to participate in this year's sale by contacting the Council Service Center at 540-662-2551 or email at Kari.Judson@scouting.org
The Popcorn Sale is Important
- Scouts gain confidence, salesmanship and communication skills, and a sense of accomplishment. The popcorn sale is not about selling popcorn, it's about promoting Scouting and Scouting ideals!
- Units have the ability to fund their entire year's program through the popcorn sale alone. We have also changed the ordering guidelines and Units are allowed to order by the container and not only by the full case (Take Order only). This reduces the risk of having leftover product at the end of the sale.
- The popcorn sale helps the Council raise money for improving the summer camp facilities, offering more extensive training for our volunteers, leaders and members, and helping us get to know and serve the needs of our volunteers and Units better.
