Popcorn Fundraiser

The Cradle of Liberty Council partners with Trail’s End to provide its units with the annual popcorn fundraiser: a turn-key, time-tested method to raise money to fund your unit’s Scouting programs like summer camp, campouts, field trips, and equipment. During the sale, Scouts sell the opportunity for people to support Scouting adventures; the popcorn product is the thank-you for doing so. A portion of the proceeds also supports council camps and other operational costs.

Purchasing popcorn helps build tomorrow's leaders!
