Thank you for your participation in the Great Alaska Council’s 2016 Popcorn Sale! Each year the sale achieves three main objectives for our organization:
First, the sale raises over $300,000 for our units within our council, equating to an average of about $3,000 per unit who participates in the sale.
Secondly, the money made by your unit is matched back to the council by Trail’s End. That means another $300,000 comes back to units in goods and services provided by the Great Alaska Council.
Third, the sale gives us the opportunity to instill a strong work ethic in our youth, encouraging Scouts to earn their way to activities and events.
Thanks to the fact that over two thirds of the sale comes back to Scouting, our annual popcorn sale is a huge resource for our local Scouting program. By participating in the sale you not only guarantee your unit a good revenue stream but also guarantee that prices for programs stay low, camperships continue to be available for Scouts, improvements keep being made to camp and that services and training are available for your leaders. On behalf of all our members, thank you for your leadership and involvement to this important program.
