Thank you for your support of this year’s popcorn sale and congratulations!
Our Council's Scouts sold over $584,000 worth of popcorn this fall!
We're just Poppin' with Excitement!
Council Kernel Adrienne Rubin welcomes you to the 2015 Popcorn Sale!
Popcorn enables your unit to do the things you want without having to do numerous fund raisers. By selling popcorn in the fall, it can support the entire year of scouting for your unit. Not only does it help raise funds for your unit but there are plenty of rewards for your scouts as well.
Dens and patrols can earn prizes, gift cards, scholarship money, and for all scouts who sell $600 or more, they can get their very own Fire-Tek rocket which consists of a launcher and light-up rockets!
We have assembled a tasty line-up of products at different prices that customers will enjoy as they support scouting by purchasing popcorn. And remember- over 70% of the purchases go back to our local scouting programs!
Do you have any general popcorn questions? If so, you are welcome to contact Antoinette Layton, staff advisor John Erskine or to call the Scout Service Center at 215-348-7205 to get your answers.

We can use your help with sorting the orders on Friday, November 13th. If you or people from your unit help us sort, you can take your popcorn home with you that day after we are done sorting. If you cannot help sort popcorn on the 13th we will assign a time slot for your unit to come collect their popcorn on for Saturday morning the 14th.
