Trails End Popcorn Fundraiser Started

Posted by rbruns on Aug 19 2014 - 2:41pm

We kicked off our annual Popcorn Fundraiser at the Troop meeting on Tuesday, August 19.

The goal this year is for every Scout to aim to raise $600 or more in popcorn sales.  Additional info in attachment below.

Online selling is a great way to supplement sales in your neighborhood and the average online sales last year was $43. The goal is for each Scout to go to sell.trails-end.com to create their online selling account and send emails to 15 or more family and friends.

Contact Scott Saunders at scott@apiexchange.com or at 719-332-3396 if you have any question or need additional order forms.
