Popcorn Bliz (POSTPONED to Tuesday October 8, 2019)
Fundraising with Scout Popcorn is a youth-led activity. It helps youths better prepare for success in the real world! Aside from raising money, youths develop many valuable business skills. They will learn about financial responsibility, marketing strategy and time management while also increasing their self-esteem and confidence in the process. With the money raised from Scout Popcorn, our group and youths can plan for exciting activities such as camps, Jamborees, canoe and rafting trips and so much more. Please help by participating in our annual Popcorn Blitz. Thank you.
