Veterans Day – Military Popcorn Fundraiser

We have a great fundraising opportunity for your Pack, Troop, or Crew!  This Sunday, November 11th is Veterans Day and chance for our Scouts to support and give back to our military.  

One way we can do this is by asking family, friends and the community to give a donation of military popcorn to our veterans’ organizations, military men and women, and military families so they can enjoy a taste of home where ever they may be. 

At the same time we are helping the military, we would also be helping local Scouting in a big way!  Military popcorn donations can be made at the $30 silver level or the $50 gold level and there is no limit to the number of donations an individual or group would like to make.  30% of the proceeds from this donation would go directly to your Scouts and unit.  An added bonus of this fundraiser is that you never have to develop or handle the product that will be donated.  It is sent directly to our Military and their families.  The only thing being asked of the Scouts and their families is their time and effort for a great cause.

The time frame to conduct this fundraising campaign would be between now and November 18th.  We know that this has been presented to you with very short notice.  Nevertheless, we believe that the logistics of organizing and participating in this fundraiser are minimal and have outlined the entire plan in the Kernel Instructions document below.   Also below is a military donation campaign flier which can be used by Scouts and their families when collecting donations.  If your unit would like to participate in this fundraiser, please let the District Executive in your area know and they will make sure you get the materials you need to be successful.

Many of us have friends and family in the military that have indicated they greatly appreciated and enjoyed getting popcorn sent to them while overseas on active duty.  We highly encourage all of our units and Scouts to participate in this fundraiser that positively impacts the lives of those that serve the country we love, and the Scouting program.
