2018 Popcorn Fund Raiser

Posted by bheldke on Oct 16 2018 - 10:36am

10/15/2018 UPDATE: 

Popcorn PIck up times this week, and if you're done selling, please come over with your order forms and I'll fill your orders. Order forms DUE OCTOBER 22. Remember October 22 is the fall court of honor, so I'd rather get your forms ahead of time.    I gather order forms and make sure I have enough popcorn to fill them.  Fill them out with name, address, troop number, phone number, etc.  My last order to the council goes in on October 29.  

  • Tuesday:  7:30-9:00
  • Thursday:  730-9:00
  • Saturday: 12:30-2:00 

All times "by appointment":   means if I don't hear from anyone the day before, I'm closed.  text the popcorn hotline before coming over 313-805-6312.  I have ALL PRODUCTS NOW.

NOTE:   Please fill out your order form.  If you don't have one, pick one up when you come over.  I need scout name, troop, e-mail, phone etc. and totals for each product sold.  Be thorough!  

 

How are we doing?  We've checked out $10, 000 in popcorn and I'm hoping that's all going to be sold.  I'm certain we have quite a few great sales figures on order sheets out there.   Keep up the good work!  Remember our goal is $23,000.  

  •  DID YOU KNOW? The best times to sell popcorn are in the afternoon, usually on cool, sunny days.  Try other times to test this hypothesis!  
  • "BUNDLING":  if your customers are not popcorn fans but give you cash, bundle that cash for a $30 or $50 military donation!  We all benefit:  scout, troop, council, manufacturer, and our Military!  
  • DID YOU KNOW?  For every $20 you sell, 73% or $14.60 stays in SE Michigan.  The Troop gets 37% or $7.40.  Once you're over $200 in sales, you're keeping roughly half of what the troop gets or $3.60.  It's a win/win/win!  

 

 If you're not selling, you're buying.  We'd like 100% participation in either selling or buying.  I will have popcorn available at meetings for purchase.  Purchase credit will be assigned to scouts who are selling.  Remember your dues are for the troop.  Popcorn sales help the council camps as well as the scouts and the troop, so it's important we support the sale even when not selling individually.  Please also consider a military donation which sends popcorn to our troops.  Locally we send to the arsenal in Warren, The Coast Guard Station in Belle Isle and Selfridge Air Force Base (to name just a few).  

_____________________________________________________________________

Popcorn is the officially sanctioned fund raiser for not only the troop, but for the council who oversees the running of all the camps in Michigan.  Money from this fund raiser goes to putting on events for scouts and keeping the camps in good working order.

All scouts are encouraged to participate.  This year's goal is to at least hit our five year average, or $23,000.  That is only $125 per scout, which is really, really easy to do. 

I will host several pick up times before scout meetings commence so that you can check out an amount to sell door to door.  Watch for those times coming soon.

Being a Merit Badge Counselor is a great way for adults to help with the running of the Troop without making a long commitment.
