Northern Star Council
Be Prepared. For Crunchtime. is Northern Star Council’s plan to help your unit have ONE fundraiser this year. Our trained popcorn staff and volunteers will help your unit plan and execute the best and most efficient fundraiser your unit has ever had.
This fall’s popcorn sale looks to be the best ever from Trail’s End and Northern Star Council. Last year’s success was phenomenal; Scouts earned over 1.2 MILLION dollars for camping experiences and unit activities. Be “Prepared. For Crunchtime” this fall by having your unit participate in the sale. Our popcorn experts would be happy to meet with your unit to determine your needs.
