It’s Boy Scout Popcorn Selling Season!

September 26, 2014

Boy Scouts will be knocking on neighbor’s doors selling sweet and savory popcorn from September 27 through October 26, 2014.

(Omaha, NE) – September 23, 2014 – Local Scouts will be out selling popcorn in your neighborhood Saturday, Sept. 27 through Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014. Scouts use the money from popcorn sales to fund summer camping; to purchase gear needed for everything from high adventure to their local Scouting program; to earn scholarship money; and to earn commission for their pack, troop or crew. Most importantly, they learn skills such as salesmanship, organization, and money management which helps build their confidence and character for our future leaders of tomorrow.

You can support and help encourage our boys by buying popcorn from the Scout who knocks on your door. Or, you can order popcorn online to support a Scout you know. Just contact him and request his online order key code. Don’t know a Scout to buy popcorn from? Call the Boy Scouts of America, Mid-America Council at 402- 431-9BSA (9272), and a Scout in your community will stop by your house. However you get some delicious Boy Scout popcorn – enjoy! And, feel good about doing a good thing by supporting the Boy Scouts of America.
