Sale Overview

This year we have planned for a slightly different campaign than previous years by having Units and Scouts begin from Day 1 with a Take Order sale. Show & Sell will begin a couple weeks later. There are two dates for units to place product orders with Order 1 consisting of Take Order at that time and Show & Sell. Order 2 is for the remaining product needs to fulfill all a unit's orders.

Please see the Unit Kernel Guidebook for more details, but know a successful and safe popcorn sale is possible this year!

Welcome to the 2020 Popcorn Sale

As we kick off this year's popcorn sale, we understand now - more than ever - the value of the fundraising dollars that can be accessed by our units and council. Because of the current environment, this year's sale will undoubtedly be different, however we never underestimate our Scouts and their initiative to sell popcorn!
