Popcorn

The Troop 9 2020 popcorn sale has officially launched! This is the ONLY fundraiser that Troop 9 conducts all year. 73 percent of the money raised will go to Troop 9 to fund Scout activities including campouts and community service projects. Our goal is to make $10,000 in popcorn sales, which we can hit if every Scout sells just $250 worth of popcorn.

Because of the pandemic, Troop 9 will be conducting a socially distant popcorn sale this year. That means we won’t be doing any storefront sales or door-to-door selling in the Bryker Woods neighborhood. But it also means the Scouts will need to make an extra effort to sell online and to friends, family and neighbors.

Troop 9 will be selling popcorn via two methods:

Online via Trail’s End website

  • Go to https://www.trails-end.com/
  • Create profile for Scout (if one doesn’t exist already*)
  • Be sure to post photo/video
  • Scout then emails sales pitch and link/code to personal fundraising page to friends and family
  • Customer makes credit card payment online
  • Trail’s End pays credit card fees
  • Product shipped right away and delivered directly to customer
  • Shipping charges apply
  • Online sales can be submitted through Oct. 31

 

Take order

  • Scout provides take order form to customer (electronic or hard copy)
  • Customer pays via credit card on Trail’s End app
    • Scouts manually enter credit card or use square reader through Wagon Sale option (check undelivered)
    • We can accept cash or check but are highly encouraging credit cards to maintain safety and earn more points
  • All take orders submitted to Karen Adler or Daniel Wood by Oct. 23
  • Scouts hand-deliver product to home of customer in November
  • No shipping charges

 

Door hanger pick up

To help promote online sales, Troop 9 has printed door hangers that Scouts can place on neighbors’ doors.

  • Each Scout will receive 50 door hangers (more available on request)
  • Pick up from Adler-Wood house, 4505 Avenue G (mustard yellow house, catty corner from Shipe Park)
  • Door hangers will be placed in bin on stoop, pre-sorted in packs of 50
  • Check off name on roster when you pick up

 

Prizes

Scouts will earn Amazon gift cards based on the points they earn per sale.

  • 2 points for every $1 sold via online direct
  • 5 points for credit/debit card sales
  • 1 point for every $1 sold cash or check
  • Must collect a minimum of 400 points to earn $10 Amazon gift card

 

In addition, 1/3 of each Scout’s sales will be placed in an individual account to fund future high adventure or camping trips for that Scout!
