Default Need Help.... Son selling Boy Scout Popcorn.. can send to troops

PLEASE READ.....

Over the last 4 years my 11 year old son has been involved in Scouting and this year he has made the transition to Boy Scouts. Every year each scout is asked to participate in their annual Popcorn Sales event which the Troop receives 70% of the sales to help fund the troop and it's activities. Scouting has played a big part in my son's life in helping him develop as a young man as it's taught him many life lessons and morals which will stay with him for a lifetime.

Every year I have participated with my son to help him try sell popcorn for his troop. Last year he did the best he ever did with over $1000 in sales with minimal support from me. Selling to strangers is not easy for him so $1000 in sales is quite an accomplishment. This year we set our goals at $2600 because if he sells over $2600 he will receive 6% back from his sales every going forward towards a college scholarship. Achieving the goal also brings special acknowledgement from the local council and Scouting leaders. The scholarship amount he receives is VERY small unless he sells over $10,000 which is ALOT of popcorn... $10,000 in sales would be a $600 scholarship.. THAT IS ALOT OF POPCORN..LMAO! Since he's wants to try and achieve this I am going to do what I can to help him because I would love to see the look on his face if he achieves this and the acknowledgement for him at our scout meeting.


If you don't care for Popcorn, the Boy Scouts of America also has a program which allows you to buy popcorn for our troops and their families all over the world. Last year the BSA shipped over 2,000 tons of popcorn to our men and woman in the military


If you are interested in getting some popcorn for your self, send as a gift, or sending Popcorn to our troops please click the link below to place your order or military donation. our order will be shipped directly to you.

When placing your order you much look up my son's scouting information in 1 of 2 ways.
First Name: Nicholas
Last Name: M
Zip Code: 95123
Parent: Mike or Kim

OR his scouting ID: 121367754

For some reason his scouting ID is not working but searching his 1st & last name with the zip code is.

Thanks for your support and reading this..

I am going out with my two scouts selling this afternoon. I am so proud of their scouting accomplishments...and they are only 6 and 8 years old. Good luck with your sales.

Do your best!
