Popcorn Sales and Other Fundraising Activities
Every Fall, Scouts in the Great Smoky Mountain Council sell popcorn, 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.
