POPCORN FUNDRAISER

VOLUNTARY POPCORN FUNDRAISER

Do you want to raise funds for yourself and for your troop? Want to raise a little money to put towards scout campouts and treks? Does extra cash to spend at the Longhorn Council Scout Shop sound good to you? Then SELL SOME POPCORN!

Fundraising in Troop 928 is completely VOLUNTARY, and no scout is obligated, but we hope that ALL scouts will want to participate as this directly affects YOU! 30% of all profits go directly into the scout’s individual troop account. Scouts can also earn REWARDS and PRIZES like Amazon Gift Cards (based on amount of sales). Big sellers actually receive cash back in the form of a personal college scholarship fund!

Popcorn sales to start soon and will go until early October... so start thinking about your neighbors, friends, parents’ coworkers, and even out-of-state friends and relatives (free shipping for all online orders!).

Interested scouts, please contact Mary Kim Mehlman at marykim.mehlman@troop928.org Or you can register with Trails-End (our popcorn sponsor) at https://www.trails-end.com/registration
