Fundraising may be one of the least favorite activities of belonging to an organization or team, but they are vital in helping Scouting committee and leaders provide a quality program to its members. The more money that Cub Scouts raise the more activities the pack can offer for free or at a reduced cost.Last year Scouts earned over $1.3 MILLION for camping experiences and unit activities.
The popcorn sale is more than just selling popcorn. It’s teaching young people goal setting, budgeting, communication with adults, salesmanship and more! One parent says “From a timid Lion Scout who started at 5 years old who hardly said a word to now teaching others, he has grown so much over the years. It has not only given him more and more confidence year after year, but it has also enabled him to pay for not only himself to go on all Scout camps and activities but also our entire family”
Reminder! SALE RUNS SEP 20 – OCT 27
