Pack 16’s ONLY fundraiser is Popcorn Sales!

Our Pack budget is supplemented by the trailsendannual popcorn sale. Each year The Boy Scouts of America® conducts this sale nationwide through the Trail’s End Company of Indiana. Our Pack participates in this sale with proceeds going to our Pack, the Lenape Trails District and the Northern New Jersey Council.

Seventy percent of the money raised through popcorn sales goes back into Scouting. Our chairperson for this important fund raiser is Popcorn Kernel Scott Kuperman. The Pack needs the support of all of our Cub Scouts and their Parents to make this fund-raiser a financial success. The many varieties and excellent quality of the products offered make it an easy sale to make. In addition to the usual “take-order” popcorn sale, our Pack will be participating in a “show and sell” popcorn sale. More information will be made available by our chairperson.

Remember, “Girl Scouts sell cookies and Boy Scouts sell the world’s BEST popcorn! “ We need every family’s support to make the sale a success.
