Evil villain robot Mega-Corn the Destroyer has come to planet Earth to eat all the world’s popcorn, so Earth has called upon The Popcorn Squad, a group of adventurous Scouts with super powers, to stop Mega-Corn before Earth is eradicated of popcorn! Trail’s End Popcorn has supported Scouts like you for over 35 years and was the first national fundraising partner with the Boy Scouts of America.  Units have raised more than $4 billion nationwide with Trail’s End to support their adventures. Will you join forces with us this Fall and help fund your exciting Scouting adventures?

2017-popcorn-patchIn addition to raising funds for your Unit, Scouts will be awarded prizes in our NEW prize program and Top Sellers of popcorn and peanuts will earn the opportunity to attend Galactic Blast Day, launch rockets and meet their favorite Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion!

Your Unit will also receive sales materials for the Whitley’s Peanut sale when you sign up for popcorn.  Why spend time doing multiple fundraisers when you could manage one sale and earn enough to fund your entire Scouting year?  For more information on popcorn and/or peanut fundraising, email heather.dunton@scouting.org or attend one of the District Product Sale Explosion events:
