SCOUTS & PARENTS, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Pack 11 will be participating in the Narragansett Council popcorn fundraiser. The fundraiser features gourmet Trails End Popcorn! This is to fund the many events the Pack will participate in while keeping our dues and costs for each item down to a reasonable amount.
Remember – each Scout that sells popcorn will earn money for his Scout Account to spend on the events that he chooses. A total of 75% commission will be applied towards each Scout that sells. The Pack will retain 25% commission to maintain the Pack finances.
The fundraiser will have 2 parts:
- The first is the traditional take home order form where each scout can ask relatives and neighbors to help sponsor them by purchasing popcorn. In addition, mom and dad can take the order form to work and take popcorn orders there if allowed by their company. You should ALWAYS try to collect the money for the popcorn up front – this is much easier than trying to chase it down later!!!
- The second is the Show & Sell’s scheduled at local stores – we need each scout to sign up for a time slot (1-2 hours) at one of the Show & Sell locations. Matt Lang will be organizing the show & sell time slots.
All checks for popcorn should be made payable to: Pack 11, Coventry and include the customers telephone number and selling scouts name on the memo line!
