Pack 85 relies heavily on popcorn commissions for funding of Pack activities. This is our LARGEST fundraiser of the year, the pack needs every scout and their families to participate!!! Of the 73% of the money earned that Trails End returns to scouting, the pack received 34% directly !!!
We are asking that each Scout "Does their Best" to sell at least $600 worth of popcorn. This may seem like a large amount but it can easily be done with the help of families, friends, and in-person shifts!
There are many ways for Scouts to actively sell popcorn:
ON LINE SALES:
Click on the link below to register your Scout up for on line sales, they can create their own page for social media. Send emails to all your family, friends and co-workers !!!
Have your Scout take orders from family, friends and relatives. Help your Scout by asking co-workers for their support. All checks should be made payable to "Pack 85."
POPCORN SHOW & SELLS:
Once our orders have been collected from our designated warehouse, we will distribute "sales kits" to everyone who signs up for a block of time at one of our approved selling locations. In the past we have worked with Vinkiers and Sunoco (Romeo Plank & 32 Mile Rd) to set up tables in front and sell there. We are hoping to add the Armada Flea Market to the list of locations we can sell at this year. If you and/or your scout have popcorn on hand, you don't have to wait to your reserved shift time to sell!
Starting in the 2019 scouting year, Trails End has worked with the Square Chip Reader to enable us to accept credit and debit cards! This has been a huge game changer for popcorn sales!
We have seen that on average during a block period that scouts are able to sell from $400 to $950 of popcorn!! So just one block period could nail exactly (or more!) of what each scout needs to aim for!! Any block of time your Scout is signed up for will be credited toward their popcorn earnings !!!
ATTENTION LION & TIGER SCOUTS ... Tiger and Lion parents MUST accompany their Scouts at all times!!!
**This year, due to COVID-19, we are EXTREMELY limited on the amount of popcorn we can return at the end of the season. It is our goal to sell every bag that we pre-purchase as a pack!!**
