Thank you for attending a council popcorn training! Now it's time to get excited and motivated to have a great sale. Here are some key points in making that happen:

  • Connect with your unit's committee and determine your program plan = budget needs.
  • Recruit at least one other parent/adult to help run your unit Kickoff and other sale details. 
  • Schedule your sites and days out selling and coordinate a BLITZ day for your unit!
  • Get everyone's goals and keep them on track, have small weekly incentives for Scouts that sold that week.
  • Keep a good eye on your product inventory and transfer to other units as needed (if you're doing show and sell)

ITS JUST 7 WEEKS, LET'S MAKE IT COUNT NOW SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO RELY ON ADDITIONAL FUNDRAISERS


Show and Sell Product Distribution is next Thursday, September 18th. Click here for warehouse details
(also posted in your Leader Guidebook).

Your District Kernel will email you the specifics.
