Popcorn Sales and Other Fundraising Activities
Every fall, Scouts in the Great Smoky Mountain Council sell popcorn — our equivalent to Girl Scout cookies — both by taking orders from family, friends, and neighbors and by selling directly (“show and sell”) at pre-approved locations, like neighborhood grocery stores. Top sellers can earn exciting prizes. As the parent of a Scout, chances are you’ll end up eating a lot of popcorn over the winter as well as helping your Scout with transportation, record keeping, and setting up to show and sell
Every spring, Scouts sell Camp Cards — “snap apart” cards containing a variety of valuable discount offers at local businesses. There is no risk on your part; unsold cards are simply returned to the council. Your commitment level will be similar to the popcorn sale.
Unit Money-earning Application
If your unit is planning a money-earning project that is not coordinated by the Great Smoky Mountain Council, you must complete an Money-earning Application at least two weeks in advance of the proposed date of the project for approval.
