The Council-wide Popcorn Sale represents a money-earning opportunity that benefits the Scout, the unit, and the Baltimore Area Council alike.  While units can fund all or part of their yearly programs with a single popcorn sale, some units empower Scouts with the ability to earn their way to outdoor adventures.  These Scouts accomplish personal goals to fully fund their summer camping experience.  To officially sign up for the 2018 sale, please complete the form below!  Join us in making 2018 a great Popcorn Sale!

UNIT SALES
GOAL WORKSHEET

 
 


Set a sales goal for your unit and for each den or patrol. Most important step a unit can do. Base the goal on your actual budget needs.

  • Communicate the units plan to assist leaders and committee members and together, determine a sales goal or each Scout, based on the unit’s goal.
  • Conduct a “fun-filled’ kick-off event for Scouts and their parents.
  • Emphasize what the Scouts will receive for hitting their goal.
  • Provide a letter to the parents that clearly spells out:
    • the purpose of the sale.
    • How the money raised will be used.
    • And what the “per-Scout goal” is
  • Consider using some of the unit’s commission to offer additional incentives that your Scouts really want.
  • Encourage ALL your Scouts to go out and sell! 67% of people will buy when asked and less than 30% of the public is asked.
  • Sell to friends, family members, neighbors, etc.
  • Take the “Take order form” to work.
  • Have a victory celebration!
