The Annual Popcorn Sale is a Unit Fundraiser sponsored by the North Florida Council.
The money raised from the Annual Popcorn Sale benefits both your unit, and Scouting throughout northeast Florida. The Unit earns 30% Commission Plus Prizes on face-to-face sales, and 50% Commission on online sales. The Popcorn Sale helps fund the Special Needs Scouting program, the Scouting in Subsidized Housing Communities program (ScoutReach) and assists in covering operating expenses and improvements at the St. Johns River Base at Echockotee and Camp Shands.
Fill It Up
Each Scout who fills up a Take Order Form (through door-to-door Sales, both Take Order and Show and Deliver) will be entered into weekly drawings for some great items. Show and Sell and Online Sales DO NOT count toward Fill It Up. Weekly drawings will be held for a MiP Robot.
Blitz Weekend Patches
Blitz Weekends are an opportunity for Units to go out into communities and do door-to-door sales, both Take Order and Show and Deliver. Scouts who participate in one of the Blitz Weekend will receive a ½ Patch. Scouts who participate in BOTH Blitz Weekends will receive both halves of the Patch. For Blitz Weekends, Show and Sell and Online Sales do not count. The Blitz Weekend Dates are: August 25-27 and September 29-October 1.
