POPCORN & Fundraising

All pack members are expected to participate in this critical part of Scouting.  We want to remind parents that fundraising has an important role in Scouting.  Pack 108 has traditionally helped the community year-round, including the annual “Scouting for Food” drive and Pack and Den conservation projects.  Fundraising is the way that the community can support the Pack.  You’ll find that members of this community are very supportive of our efforts.

Registration fees pay only a fraction of the true cost of Scouting at all levels, including activities and events.  Fundraising helps to cover:

            Holiday Party                                  Blue & Gold Celebration

            Camping                                           Pinewood Derby

            Bridging Ceremony                        Crossover Ceremony

            Beach Sweep Campout                  Scout Dues for Top Sellers

            Whittling Chip                                 Conservation Projects

            Training                                             Scout Assistance

            Scout Sunday                                  And so much more!

 

Trails End Popcorn

The annual Trails End Popcorn fall fundraiser supports the national Scouts BSA, the Palmetto Council and the York District as well as Pack 108.  Popcorn is our biggest fundraiser and the one we rely on the most.  Our pack typically sells more than $30,000 of popcorn each year.

The Pack will pay half dues for all Scouts who sell $400 in popcorn.

The Pack will pay whole dues for all Scouts who sell $700 in popcorn.

The Pack will pay whole dues and $40 trip credit for all Scouts who sell $1,000 in popcorn.

In order to support the Scouts and popcorn sales, the Pack organizes several “Show & Sells” as opportunities to sell popcorn.

Selling begins Saturday, Sept 21st, 2019!

 

Scout Cards

Scouts have an opportunity to earn money for their “Scout Account.”  Pack 108 participates in Scout Card sales with York District.  Scouts sell these coupon cards for $10 to people in the community.  The Scout earns $5 for each one sold.  This money can then be used towards Pack activities such as campouts or overnights. 

 

Spirit Nights

Our Fundraising Team arranges several Spirit Nights a year.  These are a great way to get together as Pack families and raise a little money while having fun.
